Perspectives on Law:Japanese Law as Viewed from Abroad

Perspectives on Law (法のパースペクティブ):Japanese Law as Viewed from Abroad
For over a century, Western scholars have pursued scholarship on Japanese law. Foreign scholars have produced many excellent works exploring various fields of Japanese law, frequently approaching subjects from perspectives other than those commonly found within Japan. In this course, we will read and discuss leading works on Japanese law written by foreign scholars. The readings will include works from various perspectives, including sociological, historical, economic, and practice-related perspectives. For a few class sessions, depending on availability, foreign scholars will be invited as guest speakers.
NOTE: This class will be conducted entirely in English. Heavy emphasis will be placed on class discussion.
