Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus Nishimura & Asahi is now in a holding pattern regarding the appointment of new legal editors. It is anticipated that the program will resume (hopefully) at some time during 2021.

Despite this uncertainty, if you are interested in this opportunity to work internationally for a year as a legal editor in Tokyo, Japan, please email or see me.
