Explore Japan: A Tour of the Nagoya Court of Appeals Courthouse

August 28 (Sunday) 9:00 am – 11:30 am We accept up to 10 participants.

Japanese court practice radically changed after 1945. The jury system of the 1920s was very different from the current Saiban-in (lay judges) system. There is an old courthouse of the Nagoya Court of Appeals. It displays old courtrooms and judges’ chambers. We will learn how the old Japanese judiciary was organized and worked. We will compare the old and new judiciary to understand how the current judiciary works in Japan.

A member of Nagoya Ryugakusei Net, Mr. Yoshi Matsuura, will be a tour guide.

Date & Time: August 28 (Sunday)  9:00 am -11:30 am
