Japan's Keio University and the University of Washington Launch Dual LL.M. Program

Students can obtain an LL.M. from each school in one year

Japan's Keio University and the University of Washington's School of Law have announced the launch of a dual-degree LL.M. program.

The new program will allow students to complete LL.M. degrees from each school in just one year.

Students in the new program will spend one semester in Tokyo, Japan, at Keio University; and two quarters in Seattle at UW.

According to a news release from UW, the new program is aimed at students who want to improve their international mobility and get some overseas experience. 

Although Keio University was launched in 2004, it has only recently begun offering LL.M. programs. This month, Keio launched its first LL.M. program, alongside its existing JD program. With this program, Keio has become one of only a handful of law schools in Japan, including Nagoya University, offering English-language LL.M. programs.

For more information, please see UW's announcement of the new dual-degree LL.M., or Keio's similar announcement.
