The East Asian Law Group
The East Asian Law Group meets to translate materials pertaining to the history of Japanese law. Members of the group began by translating The History of Law in Japan, Through Historical Sources edited by Murakami Kazuhiro and Nishimura Yasuhiro. This material was translated for use in our East Asian Law course, Hist 377, in the History and Culture of Law program, shared by the Law School and the History Department.
