Japanese Law Treatises
The Law Library has received a gift of Japanese law treatises from Janice Rabinowitiz, the widow of alumnus, Richard W. Rabinowitz, B.A. (Yale, '47), LL.B. (YLS, '50), M.A. (Yale, '51).
The gift consists of a collection of treatises on Japanese legal history, international investment law and Japanese commercial/business law written in English as well as in Japanese. The Japanese language materials include multi-volume series comprising annotated codes and treatises on a wide range of legal topics: Gendai hōritsugaku zenshū published by Seirinshoin and Hōritsugaku zenshū published by Yūhikaku. They will be wonderful additions to our foreign law collection.
