Who We Are
The Center for Japanese Legal Studies is the only center of its kind in the United States. The Center actively promotes research on Japanese law, aided by the country’s premier collection of Japanese legal materials. The Center also strives to be the principal source of intellectual exchange between the legal professions of the United States and Japan. For a quick overview of our programs, please see our newsletters.
The Center for Japanese Legal Studies held a conference on March 13, 2019, called "Constitutional Reform in Japan -- Prospects, Process and Implications." You can also find out more about the conference, including audio recordings, and read about Center activity highlights.
