This course provides students who have completed a Master’s Program or Professional Degree Program with an opportunity to pursue further research in their chosen field of study and deepen their understanding of politics as a whole. It also equips participants with the necessary skills to teach other students.

For advanced specialist professionals:

Building on the research and education skills acquired during a Master’s Program or Professional Degree Program, this course cultivates the ability to independently solve legal and political issues in advanced and diversified societies.

TLP course:

“Top lawyers course”. Top-level Japanese lawyers are invited to give cutting-edge lectures on developing fields of study including tax law, economic law, intellectual property law, and international arbitration.
