Gustave Emille Boissonade Biography
Gustave Emile Boissonade de Fontarabie (1825 - 1910) was a French jurist responsible for drafting much of Japan's legal code during the Meiji Era.

Boissonade visited Japan from 1873 to 1895 as one of the o-yatoi gaikokujin (hired foreigners). He was responsible for much of the country's criminal and civil law. He opposed Inoue Kaoru's 1887 proposal to allow non-Japanese judges.
