Welcome to the JAIEL
The Japan Association
of International Economic Law (JAIEL) was founded in 1991 as an academic association
for the study of international economic and business law. It has some
450 members, who are university professors, researchers, graduate students,
lawyers, government officials and private practitioners. The areas of
law that are covered by the Association include international law, WTO law,
economic law, private international law, international business law, tax law
and intellectual property law.
The Associationfs annual
meeting is held normally in late October or early November for one or two
days (see the Past Annual Meetings).
The meetings are conducted in Japanese. Occasionally, international
symposia and lecture meetings are organized by the Association which are
attended by experts from foreign countries and are conducted in
English. The Association also publishes the Nihon Kokusai Keizaiho
Nenpo (Yearbook of International Economic Law) (see the Past Issues of the Yearbook).
Twenty-five out of forty members of the Council, serving three year terms,
are elected by the all members of the JAIEL. The remaining fifteen members
are nominated by the General Meeting in accordance with the set quota of age
groups, regions and fields of expertise among the members, and also in
consideration of the gender balance. Two Director-Generals, one from
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the other from the Ministry of Economy,
Trade and Industry, serve as ex-officio members of the Council.
Executive officers, namely, President, Secretary-General, Treasurer, Director
of Committee of Research Management and Editor-in-Chief of the Yearbook,
are chosen among the council members. There are two committees, the
Committee of Research Management and the Editorial Committee: the former is
in charge of planning the annual meetings, and the latter of editing the Yearbook
(see the Officers of the Association).
