Supreme Court of Japan

History

The Fourth Judicial District Trial Court Administrator, Ms. Barbara Marcille and her predecessor, Mr. Douglas Bray, have been the champions of this partnership with the Supreme Court of Japan. Before CPS became involved in this partnership, Mr. Bray has welcomed research scholars from the Supreme Court of Japan for over 20 years. Beginning 2015, CPS provides an academic home and advising to the research scholar, and the Fourth Judicial District acts as field advisor and provides the real-world cases for the research scholar to study and explore. Historically, CPS’ efforts have been focused on either administrative/executive or legislative areas, making this new partnership with the Supreme Court among CPS’ first experiences coordinating with the judicial branch. This new relationship offered CPS the opportunity to share its unique approach to public service while being enriched by the court officials’ insights.
