    本年度は,横断的な検討作業の前提となる各論的研究を継続することとし,各研究分担者による研究の継続とともに,外部の研究者を招聘した研究カンファレンス等を通じた共同研究とその外部への発信を予定していたところ,以下のような成果が得られた。第一に,各研究分担者による研究の継続が順調に行われ,その成果の公表も進んだ。また,継続的な共同研究として,家族法フォーラムも2回にわたって開催している(2016年7月17日,同年12月23日)。第二に,本年度においては,基礎理論セクションの理論分析WTによるミニシンポジウムとして,研究分担者の興津征雄教授が中心となり,同じく研究分担者の高橋裕教授のほか,国際法研究者の玉田大教授(神戸大学),学外から,国際私法研究者の横溝大教授(名古屋大学)を招聘し,2016年12月9日に,「国境を越えた/私的自治による紛争解決と法の実現――仲裁を素材として」を開催した。また,制度設計セクションの手法体系化WTによるシンポジウム(学内)として,研究分担者である嶋矢貴之教授が中心となり,外部から,政治学研究者の鹿毛利枝子准教授(東京大学),刑事法研究者の小池信太郞教授(慶應義塾大学)を招聘して,2017年2月20日に,「刑事裁判への市民関与(裁判員法)の立法過程とその実施について」を開催した。さらに,基礎理論セクションのシンポジウムとして,研究代表者である窪田充見教授,研究分担者である手嶋豊教授,大塚直教授のほか,外部から,いずれも民法研究者の前田陽一教授(立教大学),久保野恵美子教授(東北大学),米村滋人准教授(東京大学)を招聘して,同年3月29日に,「責任無能力者による不法行為と『家族』の責任」を,外部に広く公開する形で開催し,当日は,100名を超える参加者が集まった。なお,本シンポジウムについては,法律時報の本年10月号に内容を掲載する予定である。前述のとおり,本年度の研究作業として予定されていた内容については,各研究分担者における研究活動,研究分担者の共同研究としての作業(研究会等)のいずれも順調に進めることができた。研究分担者による個別の研究については,すでに多くの成果が公表されており,また,継続的な共同研究についても,家族法フォーラムを中心に活動を行うことができた。また,年度の後半においては,複数の公開カンファレンスを予定していたが,前述のとおり,行政法研究者と国際法研究者の共同作業としてのミニシンポジウム,刑事法研究者と政治学研究者の共同作業としてのシンポジウム(学内),さらに,社会でも問題として急速に意識されてきている認知症をめぐる問題と家族のあり方についての広く公開されたシンポジウムを開催することができ,それらにおける活発な議論も含め,予定した計画を達成できたものと考えている。研究計画の3年目に入り,次年度からは,従来の基礎的な研究と併せて,複数のセクションにまたがる,より横断的な研究を進め,その成果を公表するとともに,共同研究としての内容を充実させていくことを予定している。なお,こうした横断的な共同研究については,本年度に開催した「国境を越えた/私的自治による紛争解決と法の実現――仲裁を素材として」,「刑事裁判への市民関与(裁判員法)の立法過程とその実施について」は,すでに領域横断的な共同研究としての性格を有しており,また,「責任無能力者による不法行為と『家族』の責任」は,現行制度の解釈理論と制度設計論,不法行為法と家族法といういくつかのレベルでの複合的な性格を有するものであったと認識している。その点で,横断的な共同研究を次年度に進めていくことについては,大きな支障はなく,順調に進めることができるものと考えられる。また,次年度以降においては,こうしたレベルでの横断的な共同研究に加えて,より理論的なレベルでの法の実現に関わる基礎理論の構築をめざした作業を進めることを予定している

    Presently, the Department of Justice tries to amend Japanese CivilCode. However, it has started amendment from the book IIIof the Civil Code. As a result,the amended Civil Code of Japan will lose strait numbering of provisions. In addition, theDepartment of Justice tries to amend Japanese Civil Code in order to follow amendmentsin the West, neglecting social needs of Japan. Thus, the study group has made public aProposal Amendment of Civil Code of Japan: BookI-III based on various voices ofpeople of Japan. Our proposal is quite different from that of the Department ofJustice.

    The progress of the information network in recent years has improved our life dramatically. However, at the same time, it inevitably produces collisions among the interests and values of people concerned. These collisions are, for example, seen among the rights of privacy, dignity of the individuals and the individuals' free creative activities or producing process of thoughts, ideas and intellectual property. To reconcile such collisions through civil law is one of the most urgent and important issue in society. In this context, tort law must be seen as one of the major role to adjust and regulate the order of values mentioned above.The research conducted with the grant-in Aid for Scientific Research (A) of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS) for three years and tried to resolve these problems through clarify the principle of the Japanese tort law and suggest some ways of interpretation of civil law. The research group was divided into two categories according to the values of problems. To consider the contents and the function expected to tort law was the main topic of the one group, and to clarify the role and the manner that tort law work in the society was the main topic of the second group.Based on the common idea of the research, each participants prepared research paper according to their own interest. Treated subjects are different from the questions produced by the information network itself to problems that generated from using information network. They includes privacy, publicity, e-health, internet-auction and intellectual property. Some part of the research report was published in commercial periodicals Min-Shoho Zassi, the Civil and Commercial Law Journal, vol. 133, No.4=5 and vol.133 No.6 in March 2006

  • Comprehensive Research and Practical Development of Teaching Methodologies for Professional Law Schools

     View Summary

    We first tried to create a coherent system of student evaluation. The introduction of the student evaluation is rather a recent phenomenon in Japanese universities as far as law departments are concerned, and it is prepared and carried out, usually, by law professors, who are not specialists in the field. It is therefore absolutely necessary to get specialists involved, particularly those who specialize in sociology and psychology. We have organised a series of student evaluation with the help of a sociologist and a psychologist, the result of which is detailed in the final report.In professional law schools, traditional "lecture"-style classes, where a professor speaks from the platform and students do nothing but listen to him/her, are almost non-existent. We therefore tried to develop a new type of textbooks, which are adapted to particular types of teaching methodologies employed in the classrooms of professional law schools. We have published several such textbooks (listed below), and unpublished teaching materials specially developed for professional law schools are partly reprinted in the final report.We have also conducted several surveys for the purpose of understanding professors' and students' perception of teaching methodologies, the result of which is also detailed in the final report
