Doctoral Program in Law
Kyushu University’s LL.D. program offers students the unique opportunity of preparing a doctoral thesis on law in English whilst studying at a Japanese university. The program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to complete high-level research in law.
Participants will pursue a closely supervised program of research for 6 consecutive semesters (3 years), prior to submitting a final dissertation.
The thesis may be on any law-related subject agreed in consultation with the academic supervisors and approved by the LL.D. Faculty Committee.
For admission to the LL.D., students must meet the following requirements:
- All applicants are expected to have engaged in some form of legal study at graduate level.
