The Korean Supreme Court


May 17, 2017: UCI Law signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Supreme Court of Korea.

Every year since its launch in 2009, the Korea Law Center has welcomed judges from the Korean Supreme Court and Constitutional Court as visiting scholars to UCI Law. The MOU between UCI Law and the National Court Administration of the Korean Supreme Court further solidifies the scholarly exchange between the two institutions and our shared interest in and commitment to learning from the exchange of ideas and experiences between the U.S. and Korea. UC Irvine School of Law is the first U.S. law school to enter into an MOU with the Supreme Court of Korea. Present from the Korean Supreme Court were Justice Ko Young-Han, Judge Yeon Hak Kim, Judge Kim Jung Rea, Judge Hwang In-Sung and Judge Sung Won-Jae. Present from UCI Law were Song Richardson (Interim Dean), Charles Cannon (former Vice Dean), Khary Hornsby (Assistant Dean of LL.M. and International Student Programs), Summer Kim (Assistant Professor of Law & Director of Korea Law Center), Funmi Arewa (Professor of Law & Director of Center on African Business, Law & Entrepreneurship), Chris Whytock (Professor of Law & Political Science) and Sarah Choi (Research Fellow of Korea Law Center).
