CitationJ. Mark Ramseyer, Do School Cliques Dominate Japanese Bureaucracies?: Evidence from Supreme Court Appointments, 88 Wash. U. L. Rev. 1681 (2011).
AbstractThe Article presents a study which explores the impact of educational backgrounds on the appointment of judges in the Japanese Supreme Court.
