Kyushu University LLM & LLD


antonio
Hi all,

Not here to comment on which university have the most number of lawyers... hahaha im sure tokyo university or kyoto university would have the most from among the Imperial Universities. Unfortunately, not all Universities here in Japan are offering a true LLM course. Most are just hybrid local Master of Laws courses with a sprinkling of english subject.

One quick comment though, Yokohama National University doesnt have a law college. What it does have is a graduate school for international social science http://www.ynu.ac.jp/department_en/dep_index.html . So be careful if your are aiming for an LLM.

If your curiosity was piqued about this whole Japanese Imperial Universities (supposedly top National Universities in Japan - doesn't include waseda of keio universities because they are private universities), a simple comparative table is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Seven_Universities

Happy hunting.

Personally, I think the comment of the Japanese lawyer is a bit irrelevant. If we look at the ratio of the graduates of the English LL.M. program that have started to work in Tokyo, we have to conclude that most of them have started working for a foreign law firm. I really wonder whether there are so many Nagoya lawyers working in these law firms.

Korn and Oleg -

I had no idea when we first met on this message board a little over a year ago the good times we would have together at Kyudai.

I thought it would be fitting to wish you all the best at the end of the program in the place where we first introduced ourselves to each other.

Good luck and keep in touch! Hopefully we'll be seeing each other again sometime soon!

Hi there! I just go a provisional acceptance letter yesterday with an offer of a Japanese Government scholarship and I'm ecstatic!

I would like to know however if the scholarship offer is not final yet. They asked me to fill up a scholarship application form to be sent to them within the month so it occurred to me that there might be another round of evaluation or something of the sort. Is there or this is just for recording purposes?

Also, if I don't get my final confirmation for the scholarship, I will not lose my slot in the 2011-2012 LLM program, right?

Finally, I read in one of the threads that there is some sort of an International Residence for LLM students. I am very interested in knowing more about this - the rates, how we reserve a place, etc.

Thanks in advance for the assistance!

Congratulations! I already got the deal two years ago, they used the exact word as 'provisional acceptance'.

1. Your scholarship is subject to approval of MEXT. But, from the past history, it can be almost certainly sure that the name proposed to MEXT will not be rejected.

2. For the International residence, in the past, we had a bit privilege which let us get the dorm at extremely cheap price. This year, however, I heard some changes about the place to stay

Congratz again. ^^

Congratulations! If you have received this provisional acceptance letter, there shouldn't be any problem for you now.

Well, yes there will be another round of evaluation for the Monbusho: they will send you different essay-type questions with a short deadline to send back your answers. I also know that some students who didn't get the Monbusho scholarship had been proposed another scholarship (but financially less interesting). I haven't heard of any student doing the LL.M. without any scholarship.

For the first time this year all LL.M. students were not located in the same place unfortunately. Only couples and families are placed in the Kyushu dorm which is really cheap (15,000 yen per month). Others had a room in a private dorm, also well located but more expensive (around 37,000 yen) and apparantly some students were not happy with it and moved to nicer dorms. I am one of the lucky few who live in the Kyushu dorm so that's all I know. I don't know what they will do for next year though. Once you are accepted, they will send you all the forms for the residence and all the information you need about your stay in Japan so don't worry about it.

Congrats..! I think Edouard has already given enough information. As Edouard mentioned that some of the singles moved to another dorm, I am one of them,, Actually the new dorm also provides food (breakfast and dinner) on a fixed cost and the room are much bigger, but it does cost more than Rupo (around 57,500 yen), however its inclusive of utilities (water, gas and electricity) and food. not a bad deal overall.

You should consider being accepted as a MEXT scholar and don't really worry much about it. Let me or Edouard know if you feel the need to know anything.

Wow! Thank you, guys, for replying. I really appreciate the kind words and the additional information.

Yes, they emailed me the interview questions already and I hope to send my answers well before the deadline. I'm also finalizing the scholarship form which they told me to send before the 24th of the month.

Wow. 15,000 yen for the dorm IS very cheap! I guess that doesn't include anything else other than the rent, right? I would suppose the one for 57,500 yen which includes food and utilities IS a very very good deal! I will wait for further information from Kyushu on this matter, as well other admin matters, once I receive my final confirmation.

Thank you, thank you! you're all dears. But, just in case, please forgive me if I'd come up with some other questions later on and bug you guys again. haha!
