Expert Examines Japanese Immigration Law

Summer 2011

Professor Curtis J. Milhaupt ’89, the director of the Center for Japanese Legal Studies at the Law School, recently partnered with the Business School’s Center on Japanese Economy and Business to host a private workshop dedicated to analyzing the pros and cons of Japan’s relatively closed stance toward immigration. A diverse group of scholars, government officials, business leaders, and activists discussed the country’s immigration laws from a variety of perspectives, addressing issues related to Japan’s demographics and the legal treatment of foreign residents.
