For those who have a degree in a law-related field, who have law-related professional experience, or who are legal practitioners, we offer two certificate programs:
A certificate from the Beasley School of Law at Temple University, Japan Campus demonstrates that you have engaged in the specialized study of American or international law in a program operated by a U.S. law school accredited by the American Bar Association.
Our certificate programs are open to those who have a degree in a law-related field, who have law-related professional experience, or who have a law degree. If you do not have a law degree, we may interview you to determine your eligibility.
You must complete 12 credit hours with a grade point average of 2.0 or higher within three years. Of the 12 credit hours, 9 must be either in international/comparative law or in U.S. law. The remaining 3 credit hours can be from either area. You must meet our English language standards. Also, if you do not have a law degree from a common-law country, we require you to attend our introductory seminar on Common Law Reasoning before you begin taking courses.
