About this book


This book looks at codification from a broad, international perspective, discussing general themes as well as various legal fields.  Since codification is a subject of intense current interest in East Asia, this second volume on codification is dedicated to the sub-theme of codification and legal transplant in this area, focusing on China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.  It includes two papers that discuss development of codification in East Asia and Korea in particular.  It is also comprised of two reports that draw comparative lessons from Japan, India and Indonesia.  In addition, this volume consists of four general reports and 19 national reports that guide readers through the knowledge of codification of commercial law, administrative law, civil law and private international law in East Asia.  

This book is developed from papers presented at the 2012 Thematic Conference of the International Academy of Comparative Law.
