In modern Japanese society, the situation surrounding children is very serious, and this has become a matter of concern for many people as an issue of their communities and environments. The “Legal Service Center for Children and Local Community” and its parallel establishment, the “Counseling Room for Children and Local Community” are support institutes established for children. The most important mission of this center is to be on the children’s side, listen to their voices, represent them, and provide meaningful legal services.
