Temple Law Japan is honored to present Ms. Mikiko Otani as a special guest speaker for a 2-credit CLE seminar on the topic Japanese Family Law and International Families.
As Japanese family law has remained unchanged for so long, it sometimes strikes foreigners that its rules and practice must be very different from those in other jurisdictions. In particular, the major differences in family laws based on different family systems and family values pose serious issues for an increasing number of international families. This presentation will explain some features of Japanese family law on such issues as the family register system, marriage, divorce, child custody and visitation. As Japan has joined the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction this year, the presentation will discuss its implementation and impact on the Japanese family law.
Open to anyone interested. You do not have to be seeking CLE credit, nor do you even have to be a lawyer
