Master's program of the Graduate School of Law Chuo University
Research and education in the Graduate School of Law are primarily delivered in lecture and seminar format in accordance with the given curriculum. In both settings, the number of students is small. A key feature of the curriculum is the availability, in addition to major-specific subjects, of numerous general subjects, including important subjects that form the foundation for legal and political science research in each major area. To facilitate research from a wider perspective, curricula are managed flexibly, and electives from outside the student’s major or graduate school are recognized. Students in Doctoral studies are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of projects as a contract or assistant researchers in the University’s research institutes.
In an effort to encourage broader participation by adult students, special entry exams have been offered for students in the workforce in all majors. Korakuen Campus offers classes in the evenings on weekdays and Saturday afternoons in the majors of Private Law and International Business Transaction Law for lawyers, CPAs, and in-house lawyers in government and the private sector to foster the ability of highly expert professionals to respond to society’s increasingly diverse requirements.
