An “법학 입문(Introduction to Law)” is an introductory book to Korean law.

This book neither contains nor summarizes all the legal concepts. Rather, it is written primarily to guide readers through each of the essential legal concepts and fundamental principles of the Korean law thoroughly in which the readers should understand but no other previous book has done so.


From some of my experiences of teaching law school students, I realized that law students go through same mistakes, misunderstandings and misconception as I first started learning the basic concepts of law. In this regard, I wrote the “Introduction to Law” series as if I imagine going back to meet my old self when I first started learning law at the law school. While writing this book, I kept reminding myself which way would be easier, simpler and more accurate to make readers grasp these difficult legal concepts.
