Support Activities to Remedy the Violation of Rights

- ADR, Legal Expenses Insurance


In order to promote Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) which enables citizens to resolve various disputes simply, promptly, and at low cost, the JFBA engages in activities to support ADR at arbitration centers and housing dispute examination committees operated by local bar associations, as well as at the “Japan Intellectual Property Arbitration Center” founded and operated jointly by the JFBA and the Japan Patent Attorneys Association.


In addition, the JFBA engages in activities to help citizens gain access to attorneys, such as establishing a help desk (Legal Access Center) at every bar association to introduce an attorney as a service to subscribers of “legal expenses insurance” which covers attorneys’ fees when a victim of any case or accident files a claim for damages.
