ANJeL promotes research on Japanese law and supports the research by Japanese scholars of Australian law.
The ANJeL website hosts resources on Japanese law for researchers and a selection of publications by ANJeL scholars in Australia and elsewhere.
ANJeL collaborates in promoting the multi-lingual Zeitschrift für Japanisches Recht / Journal of Japanese Law, the only Japan-specific law journal published in Western languages. ANJeL encourages members and associates to make submissions on any aspect of Japanese law and justice.
The University of Sydney Library now offers the Asian and Pacific Law Guide. The guide provides an overview of resources available for the study of law in an Asia / Pacific context. The Asian and Pacific Law Guide Japan contains resources and guides about Japanese law.
ANJeL has entered into a partnership with the Australasian Legal Information Institute to move to their new “AsianLII” database the resources ANJeL had developed in collaboration with Tokyo law firm Nagashima Ohno and Tsunematsu (previously available via the Japanese Law Online site).
This comprehensive guide to primarily English online resources about Japanese law includes web-links to legislation, case law, international treaties, governmental and non-governmental organisations, law journals, and other useful research information.
The WorldLII Catalog Japan page is available at www.worldlii.org/catalog/232.html and the AsianLII Japanese Law Resources database page is now available online at www.asianlii.org/jp/other/JPLRes. ANJeL members with suggestions for additions to the AsianLII Japanese Law Resources database page are asked to contact ANJeL via ANJeLinfo@gmail.com.
