Law and society in East Asia have been in the midst of rapid and fundamental changes, providing fertile grounds for innovative socio-legal research. Using the momentum provided by these changes, this CRN is formed to provide an important forum for promoting research on East Asian law and society and disseminating its findings to a wider community of socio-legal scholarship. Both Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia are covered under this CRN. It welcomes scholars researching on East Asia, and others wishing to enrich their research and theories with findings from the region. Sessions organized by the CRN welcome papers on any aspects or issues of law and society in East Asia. This CRN started to hold a biennial regional meeting under the title of East Asian Law & Society Conference in 2010 and is now holding a regional meeting every year after the 4th regional meeting in Tokyo, Japan in 2015. Such regional meetings have been held in Singapore in 2016, Taiwan in 2017, Australia in 2018, Japan in 2019, and Thailand in 2021.
