Colonial Cases


Consular Court cases heard in Japan are collected together with those hear in China, under the heading China and Japan. We chose to do this because the British consular courts in those two countries both had an appeal to a joint Supreme Court of China and Japan. It is that court which heard the most important cases.

Newspaper Commentary and Minor Cases concerning Japan are collected together in one location. Otherwise for Japanese cases, see China and Japan. Among the latter, see especially Fukuhara and Omoto, 1891.
