Learn About Studying Law in the United States

April 4, 2013

The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo and EducationUSA are pleased to announce the world premiere of the EducationUSA Law Conference in Tokyo on April 9, 2013. Designed for Japanese citizens who are interested in pursuing legal studies in the United States, this conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to meet U.S. faculty members and to learn about admissions procedures at various U.S. law schools. More than 15 U.S. law schools will be represented at the conference, including Pennsylvania State University, Syracuse University, American University, and the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, participants will also have an opportunity to hear from successful Japanese legal practitioners who are alumni of American law schools about how studying in the United States boosted their careers.

The EducationUSA Law Conference is open to the public and is free of charge. Members of the media are also welcome to attend. After the world premiere in Tokyo, the conference will also be held in Seoul and Jakarta.

U.S. Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos noted, "I am extremely pleased that Japanese citizens will have the opportunity to learn more about legal studies in the United States at this first-of-its-kind conference. One of the strongest connections between the United States and Japan is our commitment to the rule of law, and the legal profession is an essential component of any free society. As a graduate of an American law school myself, I strongly encourage Japanese students to consider choosing a U.S. law school."
