Abstract

Generally speaking, the legal culture influences validity and appropriateness of learning contents in law-related education. The purpose of this study is to comprehend marked characteristics of Korean legal culture and to seek implication for developing appropriate learning contents of law-related education in civic education. Because of the impact of Confucian ideas on Korean legal culture after Choson Dynasty, there is a little tendency to perceive that law is not a facilitative tool for protecting individual rights but simply a punitive tool for compelling ritual norms. Also Confucian ideas have an impact on Korean legal culture which regards private connection as important since private ritual norms are considered much more important than law. These characteristics of Korean legal culture remained up to now, because of unhappy historical experiences, for example, The Japanese colonial days, ideological conflict and social disorder after Liberation and Korean War.
