Japanese Tort Law

Keizô Yamamoto, leading expert in civil law in Japan and a Professor at Kyoto University, wrote the country report for Japan for the project ‘Basic Questions of Tort Law from a Comparative Perspective’. He has now revised his contribution and included recent legal reforms.

The Institute for European Tort Law together with ECTIL has again arranged translation into German and compiled an index, as well as finalised the manuscript for printing. As such, ECTIL and ETL were able to provide the first comprehensive publication on Japanese tort law in German to the academic, as well as professional, public. The book was published in February 2018 by Jan Sramek Verlag (Vienna). An English version is currently being worked on and planned for publication in 2019.
