Subject: Asian Law Center Lecture - Why is ADR not appealing in Japan?



Why is ADR NOT appealing in Japan? Major findings from a recent empirical survey

While the Alternative Dispute Resolution Act was enacted in 2004 to promote the use of ADR, Japanese people do not actively use ADR. Why does ADR remain unpopular in Japan? This lecture will examine a recent ADR survey, which collected about 800 samples from users and 2,000 samples from ordinary citizens, and will outline major findings and present possible causes for small ADR cases in Japan.


[Kyoko Ishida, speaker]

Kyoko Ishida is Associate Professor at Waseda Law School, Japan, where she started as an Assistant Professor in 2009. She holds LL.M and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington School of Law. Her research interests include professional responsibility, gender law and sociology of law.

In 2011, she published Ethics and regulations of legal service providers in Japan from VDM Publishing, based on her dissertation submitted to UW.

Her recent article, Why female lawyers get less? Multi glass ceilings for Japanese female lawyers (Hastings International and Comparative Law Review, 2016) focuses on gender gap of Japanese lawyers. Her other article, Deterioration or refinement? Impacts of an increasing number of lawyers on the lawyer discipline system in Japan (International Journal of the Legal Profession, 2017), focuses on attorney discipline cases and challenges widespread discourse about the quality of young lawyers in Japan.

She is currently appointed Secretary General of Japan Association of Law School.
