03About Nihon University Aim and MissionNihon University was rst established as Nihon Law School on October 4th, 1889 by Akiyoshi Yamada, then Minister of Justice, with the help of other scholars. Yamada firmly believed that Japan’s modernization could only be achieved through research and education on the legal systems of foreign countries that were also combined with a deep understanding of Japan’s history, culture and tradition. This conviction inspired him to establish Nihon Law School. In 1903, Nihon Law School changed its name to Nihon University. Today, Nihon University consists of 20 graduate schools, 16 colleges, a junior college and a distance learning division. In addition, Nihon University has many afliated schools, hospitals and several vocational schools, along with a number of research institutes.

In accordance with the ethos of the Japanese constitution, Nihon University aims to cultivate independent creativity.
