Nagoya University has a history of about 150 years, with its roots in a temporary medical
school/hospital established in 1871. It was one of the seven Imperial universities within Japan before the World War II. It is now one of the leading universities in higher education and cutting-edge research in Japan. Six out of the twenty-five Japanese winners of the Nobel Prize are former or current researchers affiliated with our university.
Nagoya University Graduate School of Law (including School of Law) has about 700 undergraduate students and 320 graduate students. We have been particularly active in exchanges with overseas universities and research institutes. Traditionally, law and political studies in Japan have been very much connected to the West. However, our faculty has been putting emphasis on the cooperation with other Asian countries and universities since the early 1990s. As a result, among the total of 1,000 students in our School, there are nearly 200 foreign students, mostly from other Asian countries. The ratio of foreign students is fairly high for law faculties in Japanese universities.
