During this visit, UCI Law entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Court Administration of the Supreme Court of Korea, and faculty and students participated in the inaugural joint conference organized between UCI Law and Korea University (KU) Law School.

This is an exciting time for UCI Law and our Korea Law Center. Our inaugural joint symposium with Korea University Law School was an enormous success.  Additionally, signing the Memorandum of Understanding with both Korea University and the Korean Supreme Court solidifies our commitment to deepening our relationship with our Korean partners. We look forward to continuing to foster the exchange of ideas and people in the coming years.

Remarks from the Director of the Korea Law Center

The Korea Law Center has been enriched by, and is grateful for, our partnerships and friendship with Korea University and the South Korean courts. We look forward to nurturing and deepening our relationships with our Korean partners.
