Introduction to Japanese Law

Introduction to Japanese Law
This course will help students understand the fundamentals of law in contemporary Japan.
Students will gain at least a foundational grasp of the origins of Japanese law, and the key concepts that shape it today, both in isolation and in their social context.
Students will learn to consider core areas of Japanese critically, discuss their perspectives with others, and draw on comparisons with other legal systems as needed.
The course assumes no knowledge of Japanese law or law in general.
