*2017年4月新専攻開設予定* 法務研究科グローバル法務専攻について【文科省 設置認可申請中】/Launch of the Keio University Law School LL.M. in Global Legal Practice

2016.07.27

 慶應義塾大学大学院 法務研究科では、グローバル化によってもたらされる様々な法的紛争に対応し、グローバル・フィールドで活躍することのできる法曹の養成をより一層充実させるため、20174月に、現在の「法務専攻(法務博士)」に併設して、「グローバル法務専攻(法務修士)」(仮称)の設置を文部科学省に認可申請中です。このグローバル法務専攻は, 英語を使用言語として1年間で「法務修士(LL.M.)」の学位取得が可能となる、法科大学院に併設される専門職大学院としては、全国初の専攻となります。


 本専攻は、グローバル・フィールドで活躍できる法曹およびグローバル企業・国際機関のリーガル・スタッフを養成することをねらいとして、主に、英語による実務能力の向上を希望する弁護士・法科大学院修了生と、日本やアジアに興味を持つ海外からの留学生を受け入れ、さらに、将来国際機関で働くことを希望する優秀な学部卒業生にも門戸を開きます。また、ダブル・ディグリー制度を活用して、アメリカをはじめとする海外提携ロースクールにおけるLL.M.の取得、さらには海外における法曹資格の取得も視野に入れたカリキュラムを整備する予定です。


 2017年度の授業時間割や入学試験等の詳細情報については、法務研究科の英文ウェブサイトにて今後、随時、更新を行います(文部科学省による設置認可は20168月末を予定)。


注)グローバル法務修士は、日本の司法試験受験資格とは関係がありません。

 Keio University Law School (KLS) is one of Japan's top law schools, educating many promising legal professionals each year in its Juris Doctor (JD) program. KLS is located in central Tokyo, the focal point of Japanese business, finance and government.


 KLS has submitted its application to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for approval to launch a new master's degree program, the Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Global Legal Practice to undertake further training of legal professionals who can be active in many fields that have developed as a result of our globalized society. The program will permit a select number of students to obtain an LL.M. degree in one year, with instruction entirely in English, and will be the first program of its kind at a Japanese law school in Tokyo.


 The LL.M. program welcomes both international and Japanese participants: we welcome Japanese lawyers, staff of corporate legal departments and graduates of law schools who wish to improve their international practice skills in an English language program; we also welcome students from abroad who want to study Japanese and Asian law and those who want to study international business law in Tokyo. Finally, the program will be open to university graduates who have an undergraduate degree in law and wish to work in international organizations in the future.


 Students in the LL.M. program may obtain up to half the credits toward their LL.M. degrees at overseas partner schools. Further, we expect to have in place arrangements to make it possible to receive an LL.M. from Keio as well as from overseas partner law schools. The LL.M. program is also being structured to support interested students in their pursuit of an overseas legal qualification. KLS plans to enter into double-degree programs with partner institutions in other countries, including the United States, that will allow participating students to earn an LL.M. from the partner institution in addition to their degree from KLS as part of a single, integrated course of study.


 We will be releasing information of the timetable of the LL.M. courses for the 2017 academic year and the details of the admission through our English website. (Following approval expected to be granted at the end of August, the program is set to launch in April 2017, and we will accept students who plan to start in either the Spring semester from April or Fall semester from late September.)


Note: Prospective students should understand that the LL.M. in Global Legal Practice will not qualify a student to sit for the bar exam in Japan or other countries.
