The East Asian Legal Studies Program (EALS) is pleased to announce that UC Hastings and the Daini Tokyo Bar Association (NIBEN) have signed a new cooperative agreement.
Over the next three years, UC Hastings and NIBEN will work together to facilitate access to the UC Hastings LL.M. Program for recommended candidates from Japan, develop academic and professional exchanges on legal issues of interest to the United States and Japan, and develop summer internship opportunities for UC Hastings students in Japan.
“The Daini Tokyo Bar Association is one of the largest and most innovative bar associations in Japan,” said EALS Senior Director Setsuo Miyazawa. “I am delighted that we have signed this new cooperative agreement and express my utmost appreciation to NIBEN for this exciting new opportunity.”
This is the second cooperative agreement that UC Hastings has signed with a bar association in East Asia. In April 2015, UC Hastings signed a cooperative agreement with the Taipei Bar Association.
