Lawyer Duties & Salary in Japan

In Japan, lawyers, known as "Bengoshi," are legal professionals who provide legal advice and representation to clients. They handle various legal matters, including civil law, criminal law, corporate law, and intellectual property law.

An exciting fact about the legal profession in Japan is that it has a unique legal culture with a strong emphasis on harmony and consensus-building. Traditional Japanese values, such as respect and hierarchy, often influence legal proceedings and negotiations.

The key duties of lawyers in Japan include advising clients, drafting legal documents, representing clients in court proceedings, and negotiating settlements. They also provide legal opinions, assist with business transactions, and handle dispute resolution.

To become a lawyer in Japan, one must complete a law degree at a recognized university, followed by a legal training period and passing the bar exam. After completing the required training and passing the exam, lawyers are admitted to the Japan Federation of Bar Associations and can practice law independently.

Lawyers in Japan have work opportunities in cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, and Nagoya. These cities host law firms, corporate legal departments, government agencies, and international organizations. Some lawyers also establish their own private practices to serve clients in their local communities.

The expected salary range for lawyers in Japan varies based on experience and specialization. Junior lawyers typically earn between JPY 4,000,000 and JPY 8,000,000 per year, while senior lawyers with extensive experience can earn salaries exceeding JPY 20,000,000 annually. Hourly rates for legal services range from JPY 20,000 to JPY 50,000, depending on the complexity and nature of the legal matter.
