the typical hungry law student). In the past, our interns have undertaken tasks enabling
them to experience the Japanese legal and business environment, interact with legal
professionals and staff, and gain an insight into Japan’s business culture. Such tasks have
included translation, proofreading, legal research, contract drafting, due diligence, file
management, litigation support, negotiations, correspondence, and the teaching of legal
