|Preparation suggestions for prospective applicants||Social security system is very domestic. If you want to research about social security law in another country than your home country, you often need to study the language of the country. Otherwise it is really difficult to know the detail of the legal system, because there are few materials written in other languages about the social security system in each country.|
