What makes Masashino University’s Faculty of Law stand out?

In this Faculty students learn the legal knowledge necessary to work in the business field, such as the work behind, and handling of trouble related to, company mergers, acquisitions and patents. They also learn about the sales and purchase of goods, hiring and employment. The Faculty of law aims to nurture personnel with a strong legal mind set who can work in positions in the future that bridge Japan to their home country.

 ‘Externship’ – Practical Training at a Japanese Company
By taking full advantage of the Ariake campus being located so close to a lot of major Japanese firms, students use ‘externships’ to gain hands-on experience at law offices, commerce and finance companies, reporting firms, government agencies and NGOs and NPOs. Externships provide an invaluable experience for students to learn how they can apply the knowledge they have learnt out in the real world.

 Classes given by experts who showcase the latest cases in law and related fields.
The Department of Law holds guidance classes by lawyers and other legal experts, and in the Department of Political Science students attend practical classes given by a faculty rich in experience (including a former prefectural governor), that really explore the nature of Japanese politics.
