Chapter Summary

This is the concluding chapter of the book The British Courts and Extra-territoriality in Japan, 1859-1899 which focuses on how the British Courts operated in Japan from 1859 to 1899 and examines the large bedrock of cases in the Courts and the individuals who operated the system to reassess criticisms of the British extra-territorial system. Appeals to the Privy Council would, obviously, engender greater delays, but such appeals were only ever intended to be the exception; and the delays that occurred were no different from colonial appeals and even litigation in England. OC1865 is criticized for reserving Admiralty and matrimonial jurisdiction to the Supreme Court. The Glamorganshire and the Chishima cases show high levels of legal sophistication and an awareness of current legal developments in England.
