Goals of the Course(JPN)
授業の目的 【英語】
Goals of the Course
In this lecture, I will try to give the basic understanding and knowledge on jurisprudence or philosophy of law in Japanese context to the international students who are not familiar with it. To do so, I will take up not only it directly, but also some non-legal contexts around it, such as historical, cultural, economic , and political contexts.

Japanese legal system has been influenced by western legal systems since the Meiji Restoration, so that Japan could become 'modernized' state and society. In this course, we are going to reconsider many issues, for example, how Japan has been modernized and how the accomplishment can be evaluated.

We are also going up many topics, such as the Meiji Restoration, the Postwar Reform, the Justice System Reform, Legislative Process in Japan, Bureaucratic System in Japan, Lawyer in Japan, and Dispute Resolution controversy.
