Public and Basic Law
The Division of Public and Basic Law deals with positive laws, such as the Constitution, administrative law, and international law, and the philosophy of basic law. Students study the present state of public law, which determines the relationship between the nation and its citizens, as well as the ideological, historical, and social premises that underlie that law.
Civil and Criminal Law
The Division of Civil and Criminal Law deals with the substantive laws of civil law, commercial law, and criminal law, as well as the procedural laws of the Code of Civil Procedure and the Code of Criminal Procedure. Students systemically study the law while comparing precedents and doctrines concerning the interpretation of laws both in Japan and abroad, so that they can come up with judicial solutions by applying existing laws to specific cases.
