Dean's Message

Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU) Law School

Sungkyunkwan University Law School has served its social responsibility and role through legal education by nurturing talented people who lead the Korean legal community and political, governmental and business circles, following the honor and tradition of Sungkyunkwan University Law School, which opened in 1948.


SungKyunKwan University Law School, which was launched in 2009 after the legal education system of Korea was reorganized into the law school system, has produced more than 1,000 lawyers for the past 10 years with the best curriculum and dedicated efforts of professors. And they have expanded to judges, prosecutors, law firms, and international organizations to fulfill their responsibilities in various fields.


But our law school cannot satisfied with this. The opening of the legal market, as well as the new challenges of the intelligent information society and the 4th industrial revolution awaits. In order to effectively respond to these changes in the external environment, we need to systematically develop the potential for greater leap forward.


Now, Sungkyunkwan University Law School is taking the development of the past decade as a stepping stone to fostering legal professionals who meet the needs of a new era that will take on new missions and roles in the future.


Through the reorganization of the student guidance and curriculum system, convergence and integration of research and lectures, and systematic linkage between theoretical education and practical practice, we will foster competent and humane legal professionals who combine professionalism, human nature and social skills.


Sungkyunkwan University Law School will do its best to respond to changes and nurture talented people who meet the expectations and demands of the society.

Thank you.


The Dean, Sungkyunkwan University Law School, Il Hwan Kim
