The Center for Korean Legal Studies

Linked with Bruce Cumings – USA.

The Columbia Law School’s Center for Korean Legal Studies is the only center devoted entirely to the study of both the South and North Korean legal systems. The Center has dedicated itself to building the most comprehensive depository of Korean legal materials outside the Koreas. The Center has also created the Korean Language and Cultural Exchange Program, which matches visiting Korean scholars with law students mutually interested in improving their English/Korean language skills. Other noteworthy programs offered by the Center are the Korean Law Forum, the Annual Trade Law Seminar, and the Visiting Scholars program.
