From Monday 28 February to Saturday 5 March 2022, we will be holding a “Legal Consultation Week for Foreign Residents” event at Kochi Consultation Center for Foreign Residents (Kocoforre).
Foreign residents will be able to ask experienced lawyers any questions or concerns they have regarding Japanese law for free. Japanese citizens will also be able to ask if they have any legal questions regarding foreigners (e.g. a member of their family or friend/acquaintance is a foreigner etc.). Corporate persons are not eligible to consult at this event. Consultations, limited to only one time per party, require a booking and last 50 minutes. Interpreters for English, Chinese and Vietnamese are available for consultations other than Japanese. For other languages, a free telephone interpreting service will be used for the consultation. If you require interpreting services, please request this when making a booking.
