Is there some reason to believe that his law school education was funded by the public.

Only the absence of a categorical refutation allaying suspicion that it is.

LOL.

His education costs at Fordham would’ve easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars; something mainstream media here appears to be under instruction never to mention. Or, in the vaguest and most cursory way. If it ever comes out that the public purse funded his fifty thousand plus annual school fees and God knows how much in ancillary expenses for his extended US sojourn, there’ll be hell to pay.

They have foot the bill for his studies, and he plans to take the New York bar exam, which means he most likely will stay in the US. So what did they get for their investment?

A Japanese lawyer who can handle legal affairs in the US.

Law school is a breeze compared to making a living as a lawyer. Best of luck!

Maybe they should apply that to members of the British royal family. When family members who are not immediate heirs to the throne, get married they become commoners and leave the family.

They technically have, and now they're clogging up all those afternoon yik-yak shows on TV.

When King Edward VIII gave up his crown to marry Mrs. Simpson, he became a duke. Then during WW2 they were exiled to the Bahamas because they sympathisized with the Axis. Go figure.

The Japanese version of Meghan Markle. Marriage for convenience, money and status.

Total waste of time. US schools suck.

So did you get undereducated there or something...

Brilliant!

That's great. It's passing the bar that counts here.

Great! Now he can be an excellent lawyer and find loopholes in the system.

The important thing is whether he can speak up that I doubt.

The Elite dont look for loop holes, they create them. Hence why you only see Elite in Japanese Cabinet.

I wonder if this law firm that hired Komura Kei regrets taking him on and all the baggage. They have foot the bill for his studies, and he plans to take the New York bar exam, which means he most likely will stay in the US. So what did they get for their investment? And this is now the second time someone else has ponied up for Komura's education!
