Professional Japanese Legal Interpreters – Video Remote Interpreters also available
A big part of our legal interpreting practice, we have been providing top-quality Japanese legal interpreters for a wide array of settings for over 25 years.
As with all legal matters, the ability to understand one another is crucial. Before proceedings can commence, the concerned parties must communicate with ease across any pertinent language barriers. If this does not occur, information will be incorrectly transmitted. We understand the demands that legal interpreting presents. We provide Japanese legal interpreters to and from all the principal languages, including English, Dutch, Swedish, Czech, Japanese, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic and many more…
The Japanese Legal System
In 1868, following the feudal regime, the modernisation of Japan (Meiji Restoration) started. The Meiji reformers were strongly influenced by legal theories that had evolved in Prussia. The Japanese legal system is based on the civil law system. The Constitution was replaced after World War II, and many other laws were newly enacted or amended.
The principle of judicial review was introduced to Japan from the United States. Overall, the Japanese legal system is closer to the continental European system. However, U.S, common law, has modified the system.
The National Diet is the sole law-making organ of the State. However, it does not mean the Diet members draft bills. Many draft bills come from government agencies, which are then submitted to the Diet through the Cabinet.
The entirety of judicial power is vested in the Supreme Court and the lower courts (High Courts, District Courts, Family Courts and Summary Courts.) The Constitution guarantees the independence of the judiciary. Most judges are virtually lifetime employees of a national governmental bureaucracy: the judiciary.
