This informative book provides an overview of the law and judicial institutions pertaining to litigation in Korea, as well as a selection of important court decisions. Throughout Korea's democratization process, litigation has played a crucial role as an instrument to solve most of the challenging civic and social conflicts - which in turn have ramifications in the nation's political, constitutional, societal and cultural domains. The expert contributors explore civil procedure, criminal procedure, constitutional adjudication, administrative litigation, and patent litigation in the Republic of Korea. As the first publication in the English language to provide a comprehensive picture of litigation in Korea, this book will appeal to scholars and post-graduate students in Asian studies, as well as lawyers dealing with Korea-related cases.
