Scholars in Residence

The Korea Law Center welcomes 10-12 visiting scholars to UC Irvine every academic year. Visiting Scholars are expected to pursue research projects at the intersection of U.S. and Korean law, and contribute to the intellectual diversity of UCI School of Law. This collaboration and network of scholars has facilitated important comparative discussions across a range of topics spanning criminal, constitutional, and privacy law.
