First time poster to this forum!
let me preface this by saying that I did search through the forums to see if there were answers to this question, but either I suck at searching or there isn't anything (most likely the former). If there is a thread that has information on this I would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction!
Anyway, I'll be applying to law school this coming fall and have begun working on my applications. I am at the point where I've started asking for letters of recommendation. I am American, but I've spent 4 of the last 6 years working in Japan and currently work at a Japanese advertising agency in the United States - needless to say almost all of my work is in Japanese and the majority of my day to day work interactions are in Japanese. I am going to ask my boss - who is stationed at our head office in Tokyo - to write a letter of recommendation for me as he knows me and my work very well and given his position at our company a recommendation from him would look very good (I believe). However, English is not his native language (obviously), and while he does have a grasp of English and can understand most, he told me he would prefer to write the letter in Japanese if possible.
Now obviously the schools will need the letter in English - does anyone have any idea if they permit these letters to be officially translated? Or does anyone have any similar experience with this sort of thing?
