Double Degree program

University of Washington School of Law (Seattle) D.D. program

(updated on 2017/12/27)

Keio University Law School has entered into a double degree arrangement with the University of Washington School of Law. Under this arrangement, students may apply credits from each school toward LL.M. degrees at both schools. A student will pay Keio tuition during the time resident at Keio, and U. Washington tuition during the time resident at U. Washington. A typical Keio student might enroll at Keio from Spring term, then study at U. Washington from September through March (Autumn and Winter quarters), then enroll at Keio Spring term after returning from U. Washington. If interested in a double degree LL.M., please review the information sheet attached when you consider applying, and inform us promptly after release of admission results. In case of a large number of interested students, we may need to engage in a selection process.

UW currently offers LL.M. degrees in the following categories:
Asian & Comparative Law
Global Business
Health Law
Intellectual Property
Sustainable International Development
General Law

Bar Examination and Admission:

The KLS LL.M. degree does not qualify a student to sit for the bar exam in Japan or overseas. The double degree program at University of Washington may allow some students to qualify to sit for a U.S. state bar examination, but the details will vary by individual and some students may not meet requirements depending upon education content, timing of degree, and practical experience. Please confirm with the applicable state bar examiner. Also, please be aware that each state's bar exam eligibility requirements may change in the future.
