This unit provides an introduction to Japanese law in global context, focusing on its interaction with civil justice, criminal justice, business, politics, gender, and the legal professions. It is taught intensively in Kyoto at Ritsumeikan University Law School (Kyoto Seminar: www.kyoto-seminar.jp).
