Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU)

With over 600 years of history, Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) is not only the oldest but one of the fastest growing universities in Korea. In 2008, the Ministry of Education ranked SKKU as one of the top private universities to establish a graduate law school. SKKU Law School opened in 2009 to become one of 25 law schools nationwide.

SKKU Law School is committed to educating highly competent and civic-minded legal professionals as global leaders of the future. The curriculum is designed to foster depth of substantive legal knowledge, as well as to inculcate critical problem-solving skills in practical settings. We equally emphasize the importance of promoting justice, serving our community, and maintaining a high standard of professional ethics. Our aim is to train lawyers who have knowledge, skill, and integrity.

Under the auspices of the Samsung Foundation, SKKU Law School has cultivated a distinguished faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and significant financial and career support for our students. In addition, nearly forty percent of our law students receive scholarships.

With sound resources, we constantly strive to develop our Law School and to contribute to the improvement of legal services.

We warmly welcome you to visit us and appreciate your interest in SKKU Law School.
