Refining essential legal skills through a wide range of elective courses – In the front lines of the business world, there is growing demand for expertise in four fields: corporate law, financial law, international business transactions, and intellectual property law. To make it possible for our graduates to play a leading role as legal professionals in these four fields, we have created a nucleus of four basic workshop Programs in these fields, around which are arrayed an extremely rich and varied selection of related courses. In addition, we have developed an advanced and comprehensive syllabus of workshops in such fields as constitutional, International, administrative, criminal, labor, and environmental law, as well as judicial systems and EU law.
While we offer an abundant selection of over 100 elective courses, these can only prove educationally meaningful when grounded in a robust intellectual foundation. A true specialist must first be an outstanding generalist, and the set of required courses essential to developing such generalists is also given great importance in our curriculum. We manifest this curriculum concern through an on-going commitment to interactive, small-group educational exercises and our rigorous requirements for student advancement through the Program.
