Jump to navigation Jump to search

A juridical person is a non-human legal entity, in other words any organization that is not a single natural person but is authorized by law with duties and rights and is recognized as a legal person and as having a distinct identity. This includes any incorporated organizations including corporations, government agencies, and NGOs. Also known as artificial person, juridical entity, juristic person, or legal person.[1][2]

The rights and responsibilities of a juridical person are distinct from those of the natural persons constituting it.

Popular culture[edit]

  • In Haruki Murakami's novel 1Q84, the farming commune Sakigake (先駆け, lit. "pioneer")[2] becomes recognized as a religious juridical person after splitting with the leftist militant group Akebono (, lit. "dawn").[3]
