Faculty information

A continuing history and tradition of over 130 years as Japan's oldest private law school

Hosei University's Faculty of Law continues the traditions of "The Tokyo School of Law", Japan's first private law school, which was founded in 1880. In line with the spread of modern law studies that address broad issues such as governmental organization and those of individual human rights and freedoms, graduates of the Faculty of Law have addressed societal issues through legal and political efforts, based on the academic spirit of realizing "Freedom and Progress" in society.
The realization of "Freedom" in society leads to "Progress" among individuals in that society. The goal of the Faculty of Law is to cultivate the fundamental skills for formulating and implementing forward-looking societal systems, laws, policies, and organizations. We invite you to join us as we strive towards nurturing talented individuals who have these abilities to realize our founding ideals in fields both public and private throughout Japan and the world.
