Symposia, Seminars, etc.

We organize and hold, under joint sponsorship, public symposia and seminars to deepen mutual understanding among relevant persons in judicial, legal and academic sectors in Japan and Asian countries, including countries receiving our support, in the field of civil and commercial law.

Japan-China Civil and Commercial Law Seminar

Every year, we hold seminars alternately in Japan or in China, where the shift to a market economy has been in full swing. These seminars are a way of enhancing our understanding of China with particular reference to the complementary fields of civil and commercial law. As well as providing participants with up-to-the-minute information from Chinese experts on prevailing trends in the reform of China's legal system, this also gives Chinese attendees the opportunity to learn about Japan's legal system.

Symposia, Seminars, etc.

We hold symposia and seminars on themes attracting interest in the field of civil and commercial law in Japan and specific countries with the assistance of relevant organizations and persons, including experts in the countries.
Some of the major symposia and seminars are those held under the sponsorship of the Asia Business Law Forum (ABLF) and the Foundation that were started in fiscal 2019. The ABLF was established in fiscal 2019, and the Foundation was one of its founders. The ABLF’s purpose is to play a role as three bridges between Asia and Japan, between the public and private sector, and among generations, to share knowledge of Asian laws from business law to human rights, and to provide a place at which people have a diversified discussion (forum). In 2020, three symposia were held, including one on the theme “Business and Law in Asia.”
Moreover, as one of seminars relating to a specific country, the lecture meeting titled “Commercial Registration System in Mongolia” by an expert from Mongolia was held in fiscal 2019.
