Japan is now about to adopt the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction into its law. But what is to be expected from this?

Field Court Chambers barrister, Ruth Cabeza, alongside Hidehito Hosokawa, a Fukuoka Family Court judge in Japan addressed members of the British Japanese Law Association in a successful seminar that covered the Hague Convention on June 19th at  the Cass Business School in London.

The talk covered the basics of the Hague Convention, International Parental  Child Abduction and what is best for the Child. They looked at the differences in the system and law between Japan and the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

The talk was followed by a question and answer session guided by Dr Chizu Nakajima, Director of the Centre for Financial Regulation and Crime, Cass Business School and Co-Chairperson of the BJLA.
