Student Commentary

Study Abroad at Temple University Japan

I have been studying at TUJ since the spring of 2020, including pursuing my LL.M. in transnational law. TUJ’s program has continued to impress me. The professors bring real world experience into the classroom, and the classes bring together a diverse range of students from all over the world and all different backgrounds. It makes for the most enriching classroom experience I’ve ever had. Furthermore, TUJ’s staff is unmatched in their professionalism and dedication to helping students navigate the J.D. and LL.M. programs, and in assisting foreign students with living in Japan. Especially during the past year of the pandemic, the staff at TUJ has made it possible for me to traverse the complexities of living in a foreign country.

It’s impossible not to fall in love with Japan, its culture, and gorgeous wilderness. Since the pandemic, I have been exploring the many national and quasi-national parks outside of the cities. The transportation system in Japan makes it easy and safe to visit even the most remote areas of the country. The class schedule and workload allows me to balance my studies with traveling and exploring the many corners of Japan. There is truly something for everyone in Japan. Because of the support of the incredible professors and staff at TUJ, I have been able to have the time of life, while safely attending classes and furthering my academic and professional goals.
