Who We Are

Dear Member,

As chair of the ABA Section of International Law Tokyo Chapter, I welcome you to the chapter’s website. I am very excited to serve the Tokyo Chapter and I look forward to working with all the members on various exciting opportunities.

Our goal is to foster networking, meeting, and education that will focus on issues of importance to lawyers in Tokyo as well as legal issues around the world. As a member of the Section you will have access to the Tokyo Committee and Listserv which is an excellent portal to exchange ideas, discuss legal issues and coordinate local events where members will have the opportunity to network and socialize. Additionally, you will have access to the Asia Committee which presents programs and deals with legal issues in the Asia/Pacific region. The committee is active in considering trade, market and legal reforms throughout the region.

The Tokyo City chapter website is your portal to opportunities for you to get involved in your local city chapter and get the most out of your Section membership. The website contains information on new initiatives, committee programs, and other events of interest to you.

I look forward to working with all the members in the region on our activities as the Tokyo Chapter.

More About Us

The Tokyo City Chapter welcomes lawyers in private practice, in-house practice, academia, government and NGOs, as well as law students, who are interested in regional activities, networking opportunities and educational programs in Japan. We work closely with Section Committees and other entities to develop continuing legal education and other programs designed to address substantive areas of law and organize networking events in Japan.

We can provide access to speaking and publications opportunities to interested Chapter members through our programs and meetings, and Chapter members have unparalleled opportunities to meet local lawyers in a wide range of practice areas who are active in our local community. For ABA members in Japan, nothing is better than knowing who to call when a legal matter arises which requires subject matter and geographic expertise.

We are always looking for new members! If you are interested in joining our International City Chapter or have an idea which you would like to suggest to the Chapter leadership (or if you just want to know how to get more involved generally), please contact our City Chapter Chair identified on the upper right.
