As part of the MIRAI Program, Group 6 (Rule of Law), undergraduate and graduate students, as well as working professionals from eight countries in the Central Asia and Caucasus region, visited our office (Nishimura & Asahi (Gaikokuho Kyodo Jigyo)) on Thursday, January 18, 2024. The MIRAI Program is an international exchange program promoted by the Japanese Government, the purpose of which is to enhance interaction between people from all over the world and to facilitate a better understanding of Japan. During this visit, lectures on international investment law and competition law were held by Tokyo counsel Yukiko Tomimatsu and Tokyo associate Junichi Shingai, two lawyers from our firm.
The titles of the lectures were “International Investment Law – Sustainability in Energy” by Yukiko Tomimatsu and “International Relations from a Competition Law Perspective” by Junichi Shingai. The participants asked many questions, and we had a lively discussion.
The session provided the participants with knowledge of legal practice in Japan, international investment agreements, and competition law, and also gave them a deeper understanding of promoting the rule of law.
