Abstract
In the aftermath of the Korean War that literally devastated the whole nation a half decade ago, the Republic of Korea miraculously grew up from one of the poorest nations into the 13th economy in GDP as of 2007. Along with an established industrial economy, Korea has also changed dramatically during the last few decades in the political environment, broadening and deepening its democracy. These political and economical infrastructures laid a solid cornerstone for the rule of law.

Drawing on the experiences of other nations and creatively adapting these lessons in its own context, the Korean legal system has also been developing into a firm and sound one. Consequently, the Korean judiciary is gradually increasing its scope of influence in response to the enhanced demand of the people calling for more reasonable and fair society.
