Dear prospective participants of the 4th East Asian Legal Studies Conference (EALS
We are pleased to inform you that a preliminary program of the upcoming EALS 2015 is now available at URL below. We very much appreciate your patience.
Please check this site periodically as we may have to make various adjustments.
In addition to the nine keynote speeches, there will be more than 50 sessions. Since the EALS 2015 is part of activities of the CRN33 on East Asian Law and Society of the Law and Society Association (LSA), we are pleased and honored to have the current President (Valerie Hans), the immediate past President (Carroll Seron), and a past President (Malcolm M. Feeley) of the LSA participate in this conference. We should also mention that Masayuki Suo, the director of the 2007 movie “I Still Didn’t Do It” will be interviewed at a session on August 6 about his experience as a member of the special committee on “Criminal Justice in a New Era” of the Justice Ministry of Japan in 2013 to 2014, which discussed, among other matters, video recording of interrogations.
Furthermore, we will adopt the Constitution of the Asian Law and Society Association (ALSA) at the business meeting on August 7. You are all requested to attend it. The first election of ALSA officers will be held in this fall on the basis of it. The EALS 2015 will become the last regional meeting of the CRN33, and the next regional meeting will be held in Sydney in 2016 as the first annual meeting of the ALSA. Details of the Sydney meeting will be announced there.
Please register as soon as possible if you have not yet done so. We guarantee that the EALS 2015 is going to be a very rich and satisfying event
We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Tokyo!
