The deadline for applications for the Summer School “Japanese Law in the XXI Century” (SSJL) that will be held in Torino, from 10 to 14 September 2018, has now been extended to 30 June 2018.
The SSJL is a short, intensive program in Japanese law. For five days, leading experts will give lessons and participate in roundtables on Japanese law from a comparative law perspective.
The goal of the SSJL is advancing scholarship on Japanese law outside Japan.
In particular, it aims at providing students and young scholars in comparative law or in Japanese studies an opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the Japanese legal system.
All lessons will be in English. Knowledge of Japanese is welcome, but not required.
The organizers of the Summer School are Collegio Carlo Alberto of Torino, Keio University and the University of Torino.
The Japan Foundation and SIRD supported the event, which received also the endorsement of the Italian Society for Japanese Studies AISTUGIA.
The Bar Association of Torino (Ordine degli Avvocati di Torino) has accredited the SSJL as a source of professional training credits (crediti formativi). Registered attorneys attending the SSJL will receive 23 credits.
