    Greetings from the Dean

    Chuo University was founded as the English Law School in 1885. Eighteen young lawyers assembled at Kanda in Tokyo to teach English law and to modernize Japanese society. Since that day, Chuo University has played an important role in legal education in Japan. One quarter of all lawyers in Japan are graduates of Chuo University, as are two Supreme Court Judges currently serving on the bench. The Prosecutor General is also a graduate of our University.

    The Faculty of Economics deals with economic phenomena such as inflation and deflation, trends in business and employment/unemployment, international economy and finance, fiscal policy and monetary policy, and regional economies, as well as other issues such as environmental concerns, poverty and discrimination, and the impact of the falling birthrate and the aging population. Students establish methods of analysis for a wide variety of social problems. We believe that if you are interested in social and economic issues, history and foreign nations, information systems and mathematics, the study of economics is something that you would enjoy. We look forward to meeting with you.
