Abstract

Even allowing for much less litigation, legal aid in Japan is by British standards on a very small scale. The extent of legal aid in both criminal and civil matters is described and the new Civil Legal Aid Law of this year, a framework act under which the government accepted for the first time responsibility for providing civil legal aid, not as hitherto , contributing relatively small amounts to a private voluntary organisation, is discussed.
