New Access to Westlaw Japan

We have begun a subscription to Westlaw Japan (an all Japanese language online service*).  Currently, our subscription is for one user at a time for the service. Please respect other campus-wide users who may need access:  be sure to log off when you’re finished using the service. Access Westlaw Japan on the East Asian Legal Databases page OR via the Law Library catalog (search for “Westlaw Japan”). Users are required to login with their UW NetID.

Please let me know if you have questions.

*Click here for more information about Westlaw Japan, in Japanese.  In short, the product includes impressive numbers of cases, statutes, and indexes to journal articles and newspapers, in a convenient format.  Westlaw Japan is entirely in Japanese.  There are over 220,000 cases (including pre-war cases), over 90% of which are either in full text or include summaries.  Also, there are some full text case interpretation publications such as Jurisuto electronic edition じゅりスト電子版, Hanrei hyakusen 判例百選, and Hogaku kyoshitsu 法学教室.
