Faced with the three present trends of economic globalization, social diversification and decentralization of government power, Japan's economic system and legal institutions are undergoing major transformations. In these circumstances, it is essential to establish a fair and efficient social system based on the principle of the rule of law.
Leaders and experts with proven legal knowledge, who are adept in the application of legal reasoning as well as economic expertise obtained through empirical research, are indispensable for the realization of a fair and efficient society. Dedicated to cultivating students who have the practical capacity to play an active role in society based on economic and legal knowledge, the Department of Law and Economics offers curricula designed to help students acquire advanced expertise in economics and legal studies necessary for successful careers as full-fledged members of society.
This department offers small-group learning opportunities, including special courses in various basic subjects, intended to enhance the fundamental skills necessary to optimize university-level studies. It also offers seminar-type discussion groups (in second to fourth years) where students can gain a highly specialized knowledge of economics and law. A course system and study planning guides have also been introduced to provide students with advice on which subjects to pursue.
