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, juridic person, juristic person, or legal person.
The rights and responsibilities of a juridical person are distinct from those of the natural persons constituting it.
- In Haruki Murakami's novel 1Q84, the farming commune Sakigake (先駆け, lit. "pioneer") becomes recognized as a religious juridical person after splitting with the leftist militant group Akebono (曙, lit. "dawn").
