Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world and the financial, industrial, and commercial center of Japan. It is also a birthplace of high technology, which explains Japan’s key role in the area of intellectual property law, a topic of critical importance both for the overall economy and for individual companies. We will also introduce you to the most important legal concepts and issues of the World Trade Organization. As one of the leading players of the WTO, Japan is an ideal place to study WTO law. The so called ‹Public International Law of Economic Globalization› pervades national and European law. Solid knowledge in this field is essential. Waseda University, one of the leading private universities of Asia and the world, is our partner.
