A Brief History of Korean Organizing Committee of the 10th World  Congress of Constitutional Law(IACL-AIDC) 2018 in Seoul

 

 

A. New Start of International Association of Constitutional Law(IACL)

 

The worldwide constitutional Law scholars who agreed with developing a network of constitutionalists from countries throughout the world and providing a forum for the exchange of knowledge and information about constitutional systems including Prof. Kim, Cheol-Su (Seoul National University, Korea) and Prof. Kobayasi(Toyko University, Japan) established International Association of Constitutional Law(IACL) in 1981.

Since 1981, Korean Constitutional Law Scholars have continued to attend the world congresses of IACL and executive meetings.

 

 

B. Origin of Korean Organizing Committee

 

Historically Executive Committee Meeting of IACL decided to let the World Congress of Constitutional Law 2018 be held in Seoul at   Bucharest University College of Law, Romania 20 Nov. 2014.

At that time, enthusiastic three Korean constitutional law professors (Prof.CHO, Byung-Yoon, Prof. JEONG, JaeHwang, Prof. Rhee, Woo-Young) were there.

Since then, Korean professors including Prof.CHO, Byung-Yoon, Prof.JEONG, JaeHwang, and Prof.Kim, Jongcheol have participated in Executive Committee Meetings.(Johannesburg Meeting, South Africa April 2015; Athens Meeting, Greece Oct. 2015; Melbourne Meeting, Australia May 2016).

Through the vivid experiences of attendances to Executive Committee Meetings, Korean constitutional law professors(including Prof.CHO, Byung-Yoon, Prof.JEONG, JaeHwang, and Prof.Kim Dai Whan about 20 professors attended) were encouraged to establish "Korean Organizing Committee of the 10th World Congress of Constitutional Law(IACL-ADIC) 2018 Seoul" 25 March 2016.

Meantime Prof.JEONG, JaeHwang was elected to Chairman of Korean Organizing Committee of the 10th World Congress of Constitutional Law(IACL-ADIC) 2018 Seoul with warm supports of attended professors.

With passion, Prof.JEONG, JaeHwang has got the crucial governmental supports, which means that Supreme Court of Korea, Constitutional Court of Korea, and Ministry of Justcie will be host of the 10th World Congress of Constitutional Law(IACL-ADIC) 2018 Seoul.

Owing to much enthusiasm of Korean professors including Prof.JEONG, JaeHwang and great governmental supports, the 10th World Congress of Constitutional Law(IACL-ADIC) 2018 Seoul will gain meaningful success and progressive development without question.
