"Judicial scrivener" is a term used to refer to similar legal professions in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. Judicial scriveners assist clients in commercial and real estate registration procedures and in the preparation of documents for litigation.
In Japan, judicial scriveners (司法書士, shihō shoshi) are authorized to represent their clients in real estate registrations, commercial registrations (e.g. the incorporation of companies), preparation of court documents and filings with legal affairs bureaus. Judicial scriveners may also represent clients in summary courts, arbitration and mediation proceedings, but are not allowed to represent clients in district courts or more advanced stages of litigation. The more familiar term "solicitor" is also sometimes used to refer to them, although the division of responsibilities is not the same as between solicitors and barristers in the English legal system. The term "judicial scrivener", while somewhat archaic in tone, is a fairly accurate literal translation of the Japanese term.
Judicial scriveners must pass an examination administered by the Ministry of Justice. The examination tests knowledge of twelve Japanese statutes, the four principal ones being the Civil Code, Real Estate Registration Act, Commercial Code and Commercial Registration Act. (The Corporations Act was added to the examination in 2006.) The examination consists of two written tests followed by one oral test; the overall pass rate is 2.8%. A person may also become qualified as a judicial scrivener by working for ten years as a court secretary, judicial secretary, or prosecutor's secretary.
Judicial scriveners must maintain a membership in the judicial scrivener association (司法書士会, shihō shoshi kai) for the prefecture in which they work. They can be found in solo practice or attached to law firms as employees of attorneys at law. A small number of judicial scriveners work as in-house counsel for companies, but there are strict conditions for registration of in-house judicial scriveners.
You could also create a document reference from each scene to its scene card for quick access without having to search the Binder. This post talks about how to create references. It focuses on creating external project references (like web page links), but you can create an internal document reference with the same process. Just choose Document instead of Project References, and then add an Internal Reference from the drop-down menu. -in-scrivener/
Scrivener is absolutely magic. I'm writing a book which has been up to 90,000 words and edited back to 60,000 with much shuffling of chapters and sub chapters. Research all in the scrivener file and footnoting as I go. Just imagine managing a word document this size ... exactly. Utterly wonderful piece of kit Oh and PS I am using pictures created in Keynote and captured as jpegs, scrivener handles them fantastically giving me simple options to re-size and centre if I want. 350c69d7ab
