Kei Komuro, a paralegal at the Okuno & Partners law firm in Japan, will attend Fordham Law School starting in August. Mr. Komuro and Japan’s Princess Mako announced in September 2017 that they plan to marry.
Mr. Komuro has received the Michael M. Martin Scholarship. The Martin Scholarship is a merit scholarship covering the full cost of tuition from Fordham Law based on his strong academic and other credentials. The Martin Scholarship is not a loan and does not need to be repaid. He will enter the law school’s one-year LL.M. program and then hopes to continue for two more years to receive a J.D.
The law school’s LL.M. program is structured on two interdependent principles: globalization and specialization. The eight LL.M. degrees offer the opportunity to specialize in fields that are evolving as the law, economy, technology, and times demand. This spring, 181 students were enrolled in the LL.M. program, six of them from Japan. More information about the LL.M. program is here.
