Tokyo INC Negotiation and Arbitration Moot Competition
Since 2005 ANJeL has facilitated and supported a combined “Team Australia” group of law students to compete very successfully, in English and often also in Japanese-language rounds, in a moot competition held in Tokyo late November developing and testing skills in cross-border commercial negotiation and arbitration. Course credit at Australian home universities (notably at ANU and USydney) may be available for some students selected for the Team.

An article in Zeitschrift für Japanisches Recht (Journal of Japanese Law) by JSPS fellow Giorgio Fabio Colombo provides an overview of the Kyoto/Tokyo Seminars.
These events are held annually and ANJeL welcomes expressions of interest for participation in future years.
ANJeL "Japanese Law in Context" Podcast Interview Series
ANJeL has collaborated with the Japanese Studies Association of Australia (JSAA), thanks to Mini-Grant funding from the Japan Foundation Sydney awarded in November 2020, to complete 20 podcasts introducing Japanese Law in comparative and socio-economic contexts. The interviews also include segments on the current or likely impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the diverse sub-fields of Japanese law and society, listed here with thanks to the expert interviewees and others. The podcast "playlist" can be found here on Youtube.
Canberra Seminar on Australian Law
The Canberra Seminar in Australian Law is a two-week program that introduces students to the basics of Australian law. Currently there are two universities — Aoyama Gakuin University and Ritsumeikan University — participating in this program on a regular basis. The interest in the program has grown over the years, from just 20 students in 2007 to 50 students (with the participation of Osaka University) in 2012.
Courses on Japanese Law available at the Australian National University and the University of Sydney
The ANJeL directors offer a number of courses on Japanese law at their respective institutions.
