     In this class, we will study about the Japanese family law systems and the problems involved with them. To do so, we use some controversial cases decided by the Supreme Court. 

     Each class is divided into two parts. At the beginning of the class a short case will be distributed. Students will read it and guess the conclusion which was decided by the judge (students from foreign countries may think what will be the case of your country's court). In the rest of the class, you will provide legal rules from the lecturer. Based on the explanation, reconsider about the conclusion and think whether there are problems in the judgement handed down by the Court.
