Dean’s Lecture Series on March 25, 2019

On March 25, 2019, FLPA organized another Dean’s Lecture Series at PUC South Campus, having Prof. Y. Matsuura, Doctoral Education Consortium, Nagoya University, Japan, giving a lecture on “Writing a Good Research Proposal-Essential Skills for Effective Writing.”

Having extensive experience in supervising hundreds of students and a member of the admission committee at Graduate School of Law, Nagoya University, Prof. Matsuura shared with FLPA’s students and other participants five main ingredients of a good research proposal. Those five components of the proposal include (1) a serious problem, (2) relevance of expertise of a writer, (3) imperfection of the current efforts, (4) a better solution, and (5) a production plan.

Prof. Matsuura also answered participants’ questions, with a concluding remark emphasizing that a one-page research proposal that includes the above five components is more than enough.

Here are some of the highlights of the lecture series.
