The Asian-Pacific Law & Policy Journal (APLPJ) is proud to announce the publication of its inaugural edition!
The Asian-Pacific Law & Policy Journal (APLPJ) is proud to announce the publication of its inaugural edition! APLPJ is the first fully functional, web-based, American legal journal dedicated to East Asia, Polynesia, and Australia. The Journal strives:
To disseminate legal research by law professors, legal
practitioners, social scientists, economists, and students;
To promote awareness of legal issues in or impacting the
Asian-Pacific region; and
To provide a forum to discuss the legal issues that fall within the Journal's geographic scope.
In our inaugural edition, we have compiled a Symposium on Japanese Legal Education. Many Japan-watchers believe that the "Heisei Revolution" will not occur until the legal education, which generates the bureaucrats who fill ministry positions, substantively changes. The Articles available here offer three points of view: 1) by a Japanese practitioner who received his LL.M. from Harvard University; 2) by a distinguished Japanese professor of law at Kobe University; and 3) by an American professor who taught law in Japan for a number of years.
We also present Articles addressing the Democratization of the United
Nations, recent socio-political developments affecting Disability Laws in Japan, and the State of Judicial Independence in Burma post-independence.
For practitioners, we are proud to offer a Practitioner Note on recent developments in the Retail/Wholesale Store Law of the People's Republic of China.
Other recent legal developments are presented in a Comment on Internet Regulation in the U.S. and Singapore, a Recent Development on the 1999 Contract Law of the PRC, a Case Note on Constitutional Interpretation of Hong Kong's Basic Law in light of the NPCSC Resolution on the right-to-abode clause, and a Translation of the 'Ainu Shinpou' (New Law for the Ainu).
All of the articles mentioned above are available for viewing through
your web browser (with split-screen hyper-linked footnotes for easier
reference!) or for downloading and printing to your local machine. We
are extremely pleased with the quality and variety of articles we are able to present in our inaugural edition. If you would like to submit an original piece for consideration for our *second* edition (to be published this May), and we encourage you to read the requirements for submissions posted on our web site.
