Message from the Course Chair

Responding to a wide range of needs with excellent professors and cross-disciplinary study-Longstanding achievements and confidence in tax law instruction

This course is characterized by the following three features: (1) a team of professors offering a wide range of expertise, (2) lowered barriers to the private law course to enable cross-disciplinary research, and (3) a focus on tax law that provides exemption from legal subjects in the certified tax accountant examination. We invite students to use the course environment as it encourages the careful consideration of individual research themes and learning from a broad perspective. As to characteristics of this course, students seeking exemption from legal subjects of the tax accountant qualifying examination work hard on their Master’s theses to produce a piece of work that is particularly outstanding in terms of both quality and quantity. Intensive guidance is provided by two supervisors to help students further enhance the level of their Master’s theses. The course covers relevant elements of study related to the constitution and private law, and it provides an ideal environment for students who wish to conduct research in fields other than tax law. Our doors are also open to working adults, and a large number of our students are also working in the fields of accountancy and tax accountancy. We look forward to welcoming students who can engage in active discussions with a positive attitude and discover their own research themes.
