Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world and the financial, industrial, and commercial center of Japan. It is also the birthplace of high technology, which explains Japan’s key role in the area of intellectual property law. This is a topic of critical importance both for the overall economy and for individual companies. We will also introduce you to various other fields of law ranging from basic Japanese civil law to such specialized areas as competition law, WTO law and investment treaties. Solid knowledge in them is essential when doing business with Japanese firms. Waseda University, our partner, is one of the leading private universities of Asia and the world.
