Abstract

While the law has seldom been a central object of analysis in the sociological study of South Korea, its importance has grown steadily. In the context of planned economic development during the 1960s and 1970s, with the sacrifice of human rights causes and the rule of military authoritarianism lasting until 1987, the rule of law in South Korean society at that time was questionable. Diverse social movements seeking political freedom, class and gender equality, and the restoration of justice from historical wrongdoings, blossomed in the 1990s after the removal of the authoritarian regime provided a highly conducive environment for socio-legal studies. Law and Society in Korea will introduce panoramic views of law and society studies in this postcolonial war-ridden society that operated under the conditions of truce, and yet was both economically and politically relatively successful.
