Jenner & Block Partner Brent Caslin delivered a presentation to the Tokyo Dai-Ichi Bar Association on May 12, 2010 on the topic of international litigation and arbitration in California.  The presentation was part of a two day joint symposium organized by the International Law Section of the State Bar of California and the Tokyo Dai-Ichi Bar Association to discuss the propriety of potential changes to Japan's Code of Civil Procedure permitting additional discovery procedures such as U.S. style depositions, and efforts to promote arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution tool in Japan.
