This program started in 2013 in Seoul in cooperation with Hanyang University. Since then, SALAD (School of Asian Law and Dispute Management) was held every summer in Kobe accepting students from various jurisdictions all over Asia, in the spirit of promoting mutual trust based on the understanding and appreciation of various values deriving from the sustainable diversity of social cultures in Asia.

In 2020, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Kobe SALAD was not able to be held on the campus of Kobe Univeristy. This is the second virtual Kobe SALAD following the online session, Kobe SALAD Online Spring, held in February and March 2021.
