授業の目的・方法
/Course Objectives and method
Law is local. Law is everywhere in your life. How does the Roman axiom “ubi societas, ibi ius” (if there is a society, law will be there) apply to Japanese society?
This introductory course starts with an overview of Japanese legal tradition, constitutional system and judicial procedures. The course then deals with a number of contemporary issues that illustrate the way law works in everyday life of residents in Japan.
We usually make a couple of off-campus visits to relevant facilities/institutions and/or invite outside experts for guest lectures. Conducting comparative analyses are expected among students with diverse backgrounds. Active participation is expected. Have fun!
達成目標
/Course Goals
The main goals of this course are to grasp basic skills to examine the actual role of law and legal process in social context, with a special focus on contemporary Japanese society. It would help you to understand law from broader perspectives, rather than as book knowledge. It may also serve to make your life in Otaru safer and more comfortable.
