For Law Schools
We established “Jurinavi” in 2008 with participation of over 90% of the law schools in Japan and a grant from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
Jurinavi is a social enterprise project. We have assisted law school students and graduates with their legal careers and created new employment opportunities within in-house legal departments of corporations and public sector organizations. Few legal professionals had previously been employed in these roles in Japan.
For Law Firms, Corporations and Public Sector Organizations
Recently, in-house legal departments of corporations and the public sector in Japan have been actively hiring. We assist law firms, and increasingly, corporations and the public sector to recruit and hire law school students, graduates, experienced attorneys and in-house counsel by providing media, legal placement, and recruiting and consulting support. You may not realize this but the number of in-house counsel in Japan has increased almost 15 times in size since the inception of Jurinavi.
For Individual Law Schools Students, Graduates and Experienced Attorneys
Jurinavi is our entry-level platform and Jurinavi Career is our platform for experienced attorneys. We also offer in-person consulting.
Survey and Analysis
Since 2012, we have conducted an annual survey of entry-level legal employment with the cooperation of all law schools and the Japan Association of Law Schools. We also conduct a survey of hiring by law firms and corporations of newly-admitted attorneys, and the number of attorneys of all law firms in Japan each year. We make these surveys publicly available.
In 2016, at the request of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, we conducted a nation-wide survey of employment of all law school graduates since 2004, making the results available through the Ministry of Culture and Science in May 2016.
