Chuo University is pleased to announce the Honorary Doctorate Degree conferral to Dr. D. Ehlers, Professor of Law at University of Munster, on Thursday, May 8, 2014.
Chuo has conferred 13 honorary doctorate degrees so far, after the conferral of Mr. Rachmat Gobel.

The ceremony took place at Room 1410 at Chuo Tama Campus, joined by 70 people including the Acting Chancellor, President, and faculty.
A special lecture by Professor Dr. Ehlers was given before the ceremony, on the topic “The Relation and Development of the National and Government Communities.” Students who participated asked questions in German.

After speeches by Acting Chancellor Tohyama and President Fukuhara, Professor Dr. Ehlers received the diploma and academic gown. Professor Ehlers commented how “the conferral has become a crucial momentum to (his) academic career in learning about Japan and Law in Japan,” and expressed appreciation to the audience.

The ceremony was followed by a reception where Dean of Law Faculty Yasuyo Nakajima gave a toast, and Professor of Law Mitsuhiro Matsubara, who coordinated the special lecture, gave a speech.
In the end, Professor of Law Koresuke Yamauchi, who initially organized the exchange with University of Munster, gave a closing speech.
