ANJeL affiliates make the most significant and regular contributions to ANJeL’s objectives.
Law Centre (ALC) of the University of Melbourne, the oldest
centre for the study of Asian legal systems in the Southern Hemisphere,
joined ANJeL as Inaugural Affiliate in May 2004. The affiliation
builds on cross-promotion and joint-sponsoring synergies between
ANJeL and ALC.
The German-Japanese Association of Jurists (Deutsch-Japanische
Juristenvereinigung) was welcomed as ANJeL's second affiliate
in October 2004. Founded in 1988, it has approximately 700 members
— individuals, firms, and organisations like ANJeL —
in Germany, Japan and world-wide. ANJeL collaborates in promoting
the multi-lingual Zeitschrift
fuer Japanisches Recht / Journal of Japanese Law, with two
co-directors on the editorial board. Mutual membership is encouraged,
particularly to obtain hard copies of the journal, and collaboration
is also envisaged relating to symposiums particularly in Japan.
ANJeL welcomes the Faculty of Law at the University of New South Wales, which was a founding institution of ANJeL in 2003, in the new capacity of ANJeL’s third Affiliate. The Faculty retains many links with Japan, in particular through its generous support of ANJeL’s Judges-in-Residence program.
