Fumika Takeji (Graduate School of Law) Receives Ikuo Onaka Family Law Incentive Award for New Researchers

Updated Jun. 8, 2018
Fumika Takeji (Doctoral Program, Graduate School of Law) received the 19th Ikuo Onaka Family Law Incentive Award for New Researchers, with her two articles published in ‘Doshisha Legal Studies’. This award is offered to new researchers who have presented outstanding articles in the field of family law. Besides commending their achievement, the award is also expected to encourage their future research activities. The awardees are selected once a year by five committee members, including Professor Emeritus of Tokyo University, Akira Yonekura.

Takeji, focusing on the freedom and confinement of succession in the case of inheritance, deliberately introduced and analyzed legal precedents in Germany with themes of whether the freedom of decision of a right-holder of a legally reserved portion is restricted in relation to a creditor, and also in the case where alimentation or social assistance is involved. Takeji was highly commended for providing a new perspective on an issue that had not been fully discussed in Japan.

Awarded articles:
‘Freedom of decision of a right-holder of a legally reserved portion and protection of creditors in German laws’
‘Freedom of decision of a right-holder of a legally reserved portion and life security in German laws’
