Criminal Law and Procedure

  • Kwoncheol Lee


Lay people may find the legal system difficult to comprehend. Moreover, it is more challenging for them to understand the overall concepts of foreign legal systems. However, the best way to fully understand and point out the problems of the laws in one country is to be familiar with other legal systems. Hopefully, this chapter will assist readers willing to become familiar with Korean criminal law and procedure and thus, to more fully understand the criminal justice systems of their own countries.
