Before Chinese characters were adopted and adapted by the Japanese, the Japanese had no known writing system with which to record their history. Chinese characters were known to the Japanese in earlier centuries, but the process of assimilation of these characters into their indigenous language system took place in the third century.
This was due to the willingness of the Japanese to borrow aspects of the culture of continental civilisations, which was achieved mainly via adjacent countries such as the Korean kingdoms rather than directly from the Chinese mainland empires.
These immigrants, wherever they came from, had significant influence on the development of Japan. It is theorized by some that the flow of immigrants was accelerated by both internal and external circumstances. The external factors were Copy of juvenile justice continuing political instability and turmoil in Koreaas well as the struggle for central hegemony amongst the Chinese dynasties, kingdoms, warlords, invasions and other quarrels.
These disturbances produced a large number of refugees who were exiled or forced to escape from their homelands.
Immigrants to Japan may have included privileged classes, such as experienced officials and excellent technicians who were hired in the Japanese court, and were included in the official rank system which had been introduced by the immigrants themselves. It is conceivable — but unknown — that other legal institutions were also introduced, although partially rather than systematically, and this was probably the first transplantation of foreign law to Japan.
Nonetheless, Japanese society could not have functioned without some sort of law, however unofficial. Glimpses of the law regulating people's social lives may be guessed at by considering the few contemporary general descriptions in Chinese historical books.
The most noted of these is The Record on the Men of Wa, which was found in the Wei History, describing the Japanese state called Yamatai or Yamato ruled by the Queen Himiko in the second and third centuries.
According to this account, Japanese indigenous law was based on the clan system, with each clan forming a collective unit of Japanese society.
A clan comprised extended families and was controlled by its chief, who protected the rights of the members and enforced their duties with occasional punishments for crimes. The law of the court organised the clan chiefs into an effective power structure, in order to control the whole of society through the clan system.
The form of these laws is not clearly known, but they may be characterised as indigenous and unofficial, as official power can rarely be identified. Yamatai must have been the first central government which succeeded in securing the required power through the leadership of Queen Himiko, who was reputed to be a shaman.
This leads to the assertion that Yamatai had its own primitive system of law, perhaps court law, which enabled it to maintain government over competing clan laws. As a result, the whole legal system formed a primitive legal pluralism of court law and clan law.
It can also be asserted that this whole legal system was ideologically founded on the indigenous postulate which adhered to the shamanistic religio-political belief in polytheistic gods and which was called kami  and later developed into Shintoism. First, some Korean law must have been transplanted, albeit unsystematically; this can be seen by the rank system in court law and the local customs among settled immigrants.
Second, official law was not clearly distinguished from unofficial law; this was due to the lack of written formalities, although court law was gradually emerging into a formal state law as far as central government was concerned.
For these reasons, it cannot be denied that a primitive legal pluralism had developed based on court and clan law, partially with Korean law and overwhelmingly with indigenous law.
These traits of legal pluralism, however primitive, were the prototype of the Japanese legal system which developed in later periods into more organised legal pluralisms.The Mississippi Divison of Public Safety Planning- Programs and the Mississippi Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (State Advisory Group) cordially invite you to the Symposium on August 1 .

The Coalition for Juvenile Justice (CJJ) envisions a nation where fewer children are at risk of delinquency; and if they are at risk or involved with the justice system, they and their families receive every possible opportunity to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
"Juvenile Justice and Delinquency" is the first text to comprehensively trace the progress toward resolving critical juvenile justice and delinquency issues, and to provide cutting-edge intervention strategies to effectively rehabilitate juvenile offenders and prevent delinquency/5(4).
For the first time in a decade, Florida juvenile detention and probation officers will see a bump in their salaries — an increase in the state budget that is part of a series of juvenile justice.
