Project Worldwide Legal Professionals


Are you GLOCAL?

           In the early spring of 2011, the Asian Law Students Association (ALSA) is pleased to bring you a new project:  Worldwide Legal Professionals.  We will interview legal professionals in different regions around the world.  Legal professionals interviewed in this project are all experts who have diverse backgrounds, multicultural experiences, and outstanding achievements in the legal profession.  Some of them have studied in different countries and received multiple legal degrees from prestigious law schools that are recognized around the world.  Some of them have been admitted to more than one bar and many practice in different regions of the world.  These legal professionals will share with us their plan for education and career development, the biggest setback they have encountered in life and how they overcame it, the most important experience they have had in practicing law so far, their interpretation of glocalization’s role in the legal profession, their outlook for the legal profession in the future, and their advice for the next generation of legal professionals.

By Yen-Chia Chen & Hiroo Suzuki

           グローバル化によって開かれた人類の新しい時代は、法曹に対して大きな変化を求めているのです。グローバル化が世界の法曹たちに求めているその変化とは「グローカル化」です。これはグローバル化とローカル化を組み合わせた考え方で、お互いの考え方を補い合うものです。「グローカル化」が法曹に求めるのは、「ローカルに行動」し、「グローバルに考える」ことです。法とは国や地域の文化やその他さまざまな要素を反映したものなので、地域のコミュニティーのことを考えないことには、法を十分に理解することはできません。 ...more

글로칼리제이션 (“Glocalization”)과  법률 분야의 변화 - March 15, 2011

By Yen-Chia Chen, Translated by Chan-Yong Kim

           법률 분야에서 지역화(“localization”)라는 개념은 낯선 것이 아닙니다. 역사적으로 한 지역의 재판관할이 모든 지역에 미치지 못하기 때문에 법률인들은 주로 자신의 지역에서 그들의 역할을 수행해왔습니다. 그러나 세계화(“globalization”)로 인해 이런 현상에 변화가 일어나고 있습니다. 세계화는 인류에 큰 변화를 가져오고 있으며, 법률 분야에서도 마찬가지로 변화를 요구하고 있습니다. 세계화는 오늘날 전세계의 법률인들에게 글로칼리제이션(“glocalization”)이라는 개념을 수용하도록 요구하고 있습니다. ...more
