Ideals and Realities in Japanese Law Schools: Artificial Obstacles to the Development of Legal Education
Tanaka, Masahiro
Higher Education Policy, v20 n2 p195-206 Jun 2007
This paper attempts to describe some problems of the new Japanese law school system. As a result of the conflict between the ideals and realities of law schools, many institutions are now facing crises in their existence. This conflict originates in the various tactics being employed to protect vested interests, for instance, in sustaining the existing Faculties of Law.
