Welcome to the Fifth Annual Kyushu University Law Conference.

It has been more than a decade since Kyushu University instituted Japan’s first graduate law program taught entirely in English. The Annual Kyushu Law Conference and Symposium was inaugurated four years ago to reinforce our commitment to elevating the level of English language legal education and scholarship in Japan.

We are honored to welcome several leading scholars as presenters at our conference on intellectual property related issues. The ability to attract such an exceptional group of scholars to Fukuoka to exchange ideas in a common language is an achievement for the Program and reflects the diligence of our staff, alumni and students. I am confident that with continued perseverance, the Annual Kyushu Law Conference will soon develop a reputation for thoughtfully addressing cutting edge legal issues and will continue to serve as a valuable educational opportunity for our students.

This year it is a particular honor to be able to welcome a group of professors, researchers and students from Hokkaido University. As one of the leading centers for research in the field of IP law within Japan, this year's conference provides a unique chance for all participants to interact with leading scholars from both inside, as well as outside, Japan.

We welcome you to explore this webpage to learn more about this event and look forward to seeing you at the Conference
