Outstanding Issues In Korea that Need Brilliant Lawyers

Every nation does have its own issues. This blog does aim to discuss the topic of Law and Law School. It also aims to touch upon Law Schools in Korea. While that may be a little odd to you, it’s something that I care quite a bit about.

So in an effort to harmonize my core topics, I wanted to discuss some outstanding issues in Korea which I feel will continue to need brilliant lawyers. Issues like:

Medical Malpractice


South Korea is touted to be the new plastic surgery capital of the world. This is one particular society which places a high value on physical beauty and so more and more people are trying to get their hands on whatever improvements they can.

This also means that there has been a significant rise in “medical practitioners” which either cut corners or do not have the actual expertise to do surgery. The result is that there are so many citizens which end up with substandard results or even catastrophic ones. They need brilliant lawyers to protect those people—of if you like—protect the practitioners.

Unlawful Termination Cases


Korea’s society believes that its working class needs to work at a breakneck pace, to keep complaints nonexistent, and to simply accept final decisions that are made about their employment. This, of course, breeds the perfect mix for a lot of unlawful termination cases.

Those that have been subjected to unlawful terminations tend to have an extremely hard time to find any sort of new job that’s at the same pay level as before. So people are being forced to live in a lesser state than they deserve. This is a case that is definitely worth fighting.

There are a lot of different outstanding issues in Korea. They will always be a need for highly competent legally versed individuals. If you are thinking of becoming a lawyer in Korea, what other outstanding legal issues do you think need to be addressed?


Common Stressors That Come With a Stint at Law School

When it comes to the life of a law student, things can get pretty heavy and rather hectic. There is a reason why the common image of a law student would be someone hunched over tons of different law books with their laptop, a small mountain of notes, and probably their 4th or 5th cup of coffee for that day.

The life of a law student has a lot of stressors that come as parcel and package with it. I’m here to let you know about them now:

Harsh Deadlines

If you have ever been to school, you will know about deadlines for assignments and projects. However, I sincerely doubt that those deadlines come with the amount of stress that law school deadlines carry. You will have multiple classes which all have heavy reading loads and written assignments and projects.

It is highly likely that many of those classes will share the same deadline. So it’s a lot like trying to juggle 10 things while you have one hand tied behind your back, and you’re balancing on one foot. It may sound a tad excessive but that’s a pretty accurate picture.

Difficult Recitations

A lawyer’s weapons are usually their words and their ability to think fast. In order to hone that, it is crucial for law schools to test out the mettle of their students through on the spot recitations. These will require recalling pertinent details at the drop of a hat and building counter arguments on the fly.

As you progress through law school, you will know that these recitations do not get easier. Your professors will make sure that they will weed out your weaknesses and make you highly aware that they exist to begin with. After all, your ability to think on the fly and adjust your oral arguments can literally mean the difference to someone’s righteous freedom.

These two common stressors that I have mentioned are only the very tip of a rather large and expansive iceberg. It is important to know which stress exists in order to suitably build ways to address it. Now I want to know what you think. What are other common stressors that comes parcel and package with a stint in law school?
