This course uses an in-depth analysis of the Japanese legal system and the process of law in Japan to introduce students to comparative law methodology. By studying the law of a country with a radically different culture than our own (such as Japan), students learn what legislative and theoretical lessons they might apply to their own system. Toward these ends, specific areas of Japanese law are studied. For example, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Property, Torts, Labor Law, Human Rights, Intellectual Property and several more topics are covered.
