Jones and Ravitch's The Japanese Legal System in a Nutshell
Softbound - New, softbound print book.
The Japanese Legal System in a Nutshell by Professors Colin P.A. Jones and Frank S. Ravitch provides a thorough and up-to-date overview of Japan's legal system and system of government. Focusing on practical aspects of the subject, it covers the law-making process, constitutional theory and reality, the civil, criminal and administrative justice systems, the environment of business law and regulation and the Japanese legal professions. Importantly, it also provides a context for understanding the Japanese legal system in readily comprehensible terms, including historical background and the different (compared to the United States and other common law systems) role and organization of the courts as part of an overall system of government.
