LLB349 Japanese Law

In LLB349 Japanese Law, you will use Japan as a case study to develop the skills of Asia-literate legal reasoning — the ability to discern how culture, politics, economics, institutional design and other variables impact on the operation of an Asian legal system. In the Asian Century, Asia-literate legal reasoning is critical for lawyers to advise effectively on transnational deals and for policy-makers to fashion strategic international and regional policy solutions. The unit covers a wide range of contemporary issues in Japanese law, including legal system reform, litigation rates, constitutionalism, gender discrimination, criminal justice, judicial activism, law in popular culture, corporate governance, employment, contracts and commercial regulation.
