The School of Law and Politics was established in 1948 (as the Law and Economics Department). In the years since, the GSL has come to hold a central role in legal research and international outreach in the Chubu region. The faculty has striven continuously to adapt its research and teaching methods to the challenges of a changing world environment.

The faculty has been particularly active in exchanges with overseas universities and research institutes. Whereas law and political studies in Japan has traditionally been very much connected to the West, the GSL has from early on focused on Asian law and politics. In the early 1990s we began to approach such Asian-centered research and education in a more systematic manner. We have now reached the stage where we hold the core position in Japan in this area.
