The Business Law Department of the Graduate School of Law, Hitotsubashi University, is the leading institution for advanced business law education in Japan aimed at practicing legal professionals who are currently living and working in Japan. It offers a rich curriculum of business law classes and focuses on combining practice with theory. Classes are taught in the evening and on weekends, enabling students to continue working while earning their degree.

A significant number of our faculty has substantial full-time work experience as practicing lawyers or other professionals. A very low student/faculty ratio of about 3:1 allows close faculty supervision of student work and enables intensive in-class interaction. The Business Law Department is located in the convenient Chiyoda campus, just north of the Imperial Palace.

The Business Law Department, originally established in 2000 as a branch of the former Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy (ICS), was moved to the Graduate School of Law in April 2018 as a result of administrative reorganization of Hitotsubashi University. Building on the experiences of the ICS, the Business Law Department will maintain and strengthen its excellent qualities and further its educational goals.
