Last weekend, on Saturday the 3rd, I was asked to give a lecture by the non-profit organization Japan Legal Partners (JRP), and I gave a talk for about an hour and a half on the subject of “The Other Side of an Investigative Office”.
The JRP is a study group for people in the legal profession, with about 30 participants, mostly lawyers, judicial scriveners, patent attorneys, social insurance workers, real estate appraisers, administrative scriveners, and tax accountants. Most of the participants are in their 30s and 40s. It was a Saturday, so everyone was participating in the event in a rough appearance, which was quite different from the image I had had of myself, and I felt a little puzzled.
The subject matter was unilaterally decided by the representatives of JRP. This representative seems to like to watch everything from the other side, and both the first half and the second half were titled “the other side”, but I didn’t particularly want to talk about the other side. However, when people think of a detective, they have a strong image of a backroom business. Moreover, since it was titled “The other side of the detective,” the participants were very interested in it.
I think it was the image that I was thinking “What the heck…” because an ordinary and ordinary guy came out. However, everyone listened to me seriously and it was very easy to talk, and I sometimes got carried away and went off on a tangent from my resume, but I was able to talk about what I was thinking and was satisfied in my own way.
