Japanese law is a fledgling topic of comparative law in this country. The rapid growth of bilateral business and the integration of the United States and Japanese economies in recent years suggest the need for increased attention to this area.

It then reviews the present law school environment for the study of Japanese law as a comparative law subject. Finally, it briefly addresses three key issues basic to the development of this subject.
