Application and Admissions

The key qualifications for admission to HBL are: 1) at least two years of experience working in a law-related field, 2) strong motivation to study and learn while continuing employment in Tokyo, 3) strong academic record, and 4) clear idea for a major research paper relating to global business law.

Students applying to the Global Business Law program also need to demonstrate strong English language skills.

For non-native Japanese speakers, strong Japanese language skills will be required if the student also wishes to take classes taught in Japanese (note: it is not necessary for students in the Global Business Law program to take classes taught in Japanese, but doing so expands the student’s educational options).
