Laws and Society in Age of Globalization Seminar 1: From Chiba's Theory to Chiba Theories -- in order to Think about Laws and Society in Age of Globalization

2015-3-10 (Tue) 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

In cooperation with the Graduate School of Law and Politics, The Global Collaboration Center is going to begin a new education program, "Law and Society in Age of Globalization," meeting the needs of a globalized era. This is a course developed from the current Graduate Program for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies called "The Studies of Judicial Interpretation and Translation."
Touching on key themes for new educational programs for law and culture, law and international cooperation, and law and language (Judicial Interpretation), the seminar series "Law and Society in Age of Globalization" will invite a topic presenter for each lecture so that students can have unfettered discussions about a variety of topics regarding 'law and society' or 'law and legal culture.'
Undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, and anyone from high school student to senior citizen with an interest in participating in a forum where new things may be born rather than in learning new things are cordially invited to attend this seminar.

Seminar 1: From Chiba's Theory to Chiba Theories -- in order to Think about Laws and Society in Age of Globalization

Topic presenter: ISHIDA Shinichiro, Tokyo Metropolitan University
In the fields of legal philosophy, socio-legal study, and forensic anthropology, CHIBA Masaji's achievements are internationally well known as one of the major methods for thinking about laws and society in age of globalization. In Japan, especially in 2015, there are planned publications to commemorate CHIBA Masaji's achievements, which will bring a lot of opportunities for us to take a look at his achievements and consider their new development.
In this seminar, we'll discuss:
(1) the significance of his theory consisting of key concepts of legal subject, three dichotomies, and identity law principle (Chiba's legal culture theory and multidimensional structure of laws) by taking cases in East Africa where I conducted field studies,
(2) the current situation of Chiba Schools in Japan and abroad in order to take a look at the possibilities of developing Chiba Theories, and
(3) my idea about the essence of his studies on humans and laws he pursued by answering questions about and criticism to Chiba's Theory and from the historical context of Chiba's Theory.
These studies on Chiba's Theory will provide a clue as to thinking about laws and society in age of globalization. I would like to make a quick but enthusiastic explanation about CHIBA Masaji.
