Outline of Lecture Course

科目の設計 / Course Design
この科目は、2科目から構成されています。履修は、積み上げ方式とし、原則として、比較法政実習1を履修してから、比較法政実習2を履修します。
This course is composed of two subjects. The coursework of each subject will build on the last, which means that each subject must be basically undertaken in the appropriate order and successfully completed. Thus, It is highly expected that Peer Support Initiative 1 (PSI 1) is completed before moving onto PSI 2.

比較法政実習2について / About PSI-2
留学生の母国の法と政治に重点をおきながら、相互理解を深めることに重点が置かれます。日本人学生は、留学生の母国の法と政治の特徴をよりよく浮かび上がらせるため随時、日本についての情報を提供します。
本実習2では、留学生は可能な範囲で、日本語で自国の法と社会を説明し、日本人学生は現地語で同様の説明をする機会を増やしていきます。
それぞれの説明資料の作成は、相互支援の形で行います。数人単位の小グループなどにより、裁判所やその他の日本の司法関連機関などの訪問調査などを奨励して、日本人学生の現地研修のための資料収集が自主的に進むよう支援します。
PSI-2 prioritizes the law and politics of the international students' home country, with the aim of deepening the mutual understanding of the participants' countries. So that the characteristics of the international students' home countries' legal and political systems can be highlighted better, the Japanese students shall, when needed, provide information on Japan.
As far as possible, the international students will explain the law and society of their own country in Japanese. Opportunities for Japanese students to give the same explanation in the languages of the international students will be increased.
Documents for these explanations will be created by the Japanese and international students in cooperation with each other. Small group trips to investigate the courts and other judicial institutions in Japan will be encouraged and students will be helped to gather independently materials for Japanese students' research of these places.

Course Objectives 外国の法制度・政治制度について、外国語を用いて、また、日本の法制度・政治制度との比較を通じて理解を深めるとともに、外国語で意思疎通をする力を養う。
Course objectives: To deepen students' understanding of the Japanese legal and political system through a comparison with the legal and political system of other countries and to enable students to explain and to communicate in a foreign language.
