Kyushu LLM


Manudlf
Hello,

I am a french law student in his fifth year, and I am contemplating the idea of doing an LLM next year.

Being mostly interested in a career in Asia, and in Japan in particular, I am thinking about LLM in this area, and most of all in Japan.

First I'd like to say that if I am considering NUS LLM two, I'd like to know if Kyushu LLM might be a good opportunity to practice japanese and network in Japan.

I know that the real valu of the programm might not be it but I most of all search opportunities in Japan so maybe even if as an academic degree it's not so valuable but if it enable me to better my chances to work in Japan, it would already be a lot.

If a Japanese LLM doesn't present any interest, I'm willing to pursu the NUS one.

Have you tried looking at the bios of people working in the kinds of firms/companies that interest you? That might give you an idea of what recruiters in Japan are looking for.

I did, recruiters seem to mostly be looking for profiency in Japanese and an experience in Japan. Or, at least that is what I saw concerning french lawyers.

I think you have your answer. It sounds like language and work experience will matter more. I have one Japanese friend who did an LLM at NYU. I got the impression that the more famous foreign programs have prestige in Japan.
