Legal Reform in Korea (Routledge Advances in Korean Studies)
By: Tom Ginsburg (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Law in Korea has historically been viewed as merely a tool of authoritarian rule, but since the transition to democracy in 1987 it has served a more important and visible role as a force for social change. With contributions from leading US and Korean scholars, Legal Reform in Korea explores this response to domestic and international pressures, applying a socio-legal perspective to both legal practices and the legal institutions themselves, which have become a major political issue throughout the developing world. An invaluable resource for students of Asian law and Korean studies.
Thomas Ginsburg is Assistant Professor of Law and Political Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA.
