Ewha Law School Produces Twelve Judicial Researchers and Law Clerks Along with Six Newly-appointed Public Prosecutors

법학전문대학원, 재판연구관·재판연구원 12명 및 신임검사 6명 배출On May 1, twelve graduates from the twelfth cohort of students at Ewha Law School were appointed as law clerks and as judicial researchers for the Supreme Court. This total of twelve sets an all-time record for the school and places Ewha Law School third among law schools across the nation.


The Supreme Court has appointed four new Supreme Court judicial researchers and 125 law clerks who graduated from law schools this year. Supreme Court judicial researchers research and otherwise examine Supreme Court appellate cases to provide important reference materials for the justices as they make final judgements. Law clerks perform a wide scope of investigations and research to assist judges, such as preparing all kinds of legal documents, researching legal principles and judicial precedents, and conducting legal research. 


On the same day as the appointment, six graduates from the twelfth cohort of students from Ewha Law School were appointed as new public prosecutors through the “2023 Public Prosecutor Recruitment.” This number of appointees ranks Ewha Law School in fourth place among law schools nationwide. 


The Ministry of Justice appointed 76 new public prosecutors from among those who passed the twelfth bar exam. The Ministry of Justice appoints individuals equipped with various expertise as prosecutors to help fulfill the purpose of the law school system, which was introduced to nurture legal practitioners with diverse professional backgrounds able to provide high-quality legal services to the public. After completing the intensive education and training course required for fulfilling their duties as prosecutors over six months at the Judicial Research and Training Institute, the newly-appointed prosecutors will be dispatched to prosecutors’ offices in November of this year to begin their prosecutorial duties in earnest.
