Comparing Legal Systems: The United States and Japan

Please join ALSA and the Office of International Studies for a wide-ranging conversation with Colin Jones '93, a visiting professor of Law at Duke, about differences between Japanese and American Legal systems, living and practice law in Japan, and U.S. and Japanese legal cultures. Professor Jones had a fascinating legal career: first as associate and counsel at some of the largest U.S. firms in New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and later, as academic. He currently teaches at Doshisha University Law School in Kyoto. Lunch will be served. Sponsored by International Studies and ALSA.
