"Contribution of American Law and Lawyers to Law,

Law Practice and Legal Education in Korea"

American law has been instrumental in nurturing the democracy and market practices of South Korea, a country generally thought to be a civil law country nurtured in the German-Japanese legal traditions, and the roles of American lawyer in such development have not been discussed explicitly. In this session, the elements of American law and how they facilitated the development of Korean law practice and education will be dissected and presented to the audience by the practitioners of cross-polination themselves, citing their best practices. Attendees will be able to learn the comparative-legal skills necessary for international lawyering practices and education in foreign jurisdictions.

Session 2 (3:30 – 4:45 PM)

"Use of Artificial Intelligence in Legal Services in Korea/ Asia"

Asia was the forum where a machine beat its creators in the game of go, awakening the world to the advent of suprahuman artificial intelligence and where futuristic narratives on AI have been put to the most philosophical and emotional uses such as care of seniors, education of children, etc. Use of AI in legal services has been also most innovative as this workshop will show. Attendees will be able to learn on unique ethical issues arising out of delivery of legal services through or using AI, especially at the crossroads of professional legal ethics and AI & ethics.
