"Inter-University Exchange" Project (CAMPUS Asia Program)

Training human resources for the development of an epistemic community in law and political science to promote the formation of "jus commune (common law)" in East Asia

This project is aimed at developing, on the basis of an understanding of the Western "global standards of law," human resources for an epistemic community in law and political science that can take an active role in discussions with a view toward forming a jus commune (common law) in East Asia.

In this project, Nagoya University collaborates with partner universities in China and Korea through exchange programs for undergraduate and graduate students based on reciprocal conferment of academic credits, as well as other forms of exchange of quality-assured research and education. The participating universities thus exchange legal information in East Asia, together working toward forming theories on Asian law and assistance for legal infrastructural development, as well as establishing common standards for jurist training and law school education.
