Australian Network for Japanese Law (ANJeL)

The Asian Law Centre was invited to become the Inaugural Affiliate of ANJeL in May 2004.

The Australian Network for Japanese Law (ANJeL) is an initiative of the law faculties at the Australian National University (ANU), the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the University of Sydney (USyd). The primary aim of ANJeL is to promote research, teaching, and community engagement with Japanese law, especially in Australia.


  • offers a research visitors scheme to support scholars and jurists who seek
    affiliation while in Australia.
  • promotes scholarly exchange between the Australian and Japanese legal communities.
  • participates in global legal debates by promoting Australian and Japanese perspectives.
  • facilitates the organization of major research projects, applications for competitive
    funding, and dissemination of research through presentations and publications.
  • ANJeL sponsors international conferences on Japanese law as well as various other
    seminars and events.

The Asian Law Centre's affiliation with ANJeL will build on cross-promotion and joint-sponsoring synergies between ANJeL and the ALC. To formalise the cooperation, ALC Associate Director (Japan) Stacey Steele will attend ANJeL Executive Committee meetings in an honorary capacity. A Co-Director of ANJeL, Mr Kent Anderson, has also been appointed an Associate of the Asian Law Centre.
