US-based Japan Societies

If you want to practice domestically if you get into law school, and still practice in a manner that allows you to use the Japanese language skills and background you gained as a JET, expanding your personal network is critical.  Below are all of the Japan Societies / Japan-America Societies I could find within the fifty U.S. states.  I do not contend that this list is in any way exhaustive, but it does consist of the Societies of which I could find websites or at least address information.

Naturally, your JETAA branches will serve as a valuable support and professional network moving forward, but you will have a better bet finding Japanese professionals to build contacts with in the Japan Societies indicated below.
