Smiling faces at the farewell party
This year’s program saw 21 students and adults from a variety of countries and regions take the course, including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, the United States, Canada, China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan and Mongolia. In addition, three students from Meiji University School of Law took part, taking the total number of participants to 24.
Lectures and Q&A sessions were provided by staff at the various field trip locations with the aim of increasing the participants’ understanding of Japanese law in the context of practical workplaces, including the judiciary, legislature, and administrative and corporate workplaces.
The participants were particularly interested in and satisfied by a field trip to the regional courts - after sitting in on some of the cases they asked a series of enthusiastic questions about the operation of Japanese criminal and civil courts and the Japanese jury system.
On the final day, a ceremony was held to award certificates of completion. A farewell party was also hosted at which the participants, teachers and program assistants enjoyed sharing their experiences and opinions of the program.
