Welcome to Seoul National University Asia-Pacific Law Institute!
Established in 2012, Seoul National University Asia-Pacific Law Institute (APLI) is the first of the Korean research institutions specifically dedicated to the laws and legal systems in the Asia- Pacific region. As a result of expanding and improving cooperative exchanges in the region, it is recognized that centralizing research accumulation of various nations’ legal regimes within the region has become increasingly significant. Therefore, APLI strives to encourage Korea to serve as a next hub for academic research on laws and enhance the legal development of each nation in the region by promoting collaboration across legal practices and research.
APLI has organized annual international conferences, strengthening legal and educational relationships with nations in the region. Moreover, by hosting a series of domestic workshops and conferences, it has responded to the need for Asia-Pacific-focused research on legal practices and systems. APLI endeavors to play various roles in providing academic courses and training programs, producing legal publications and materials, and building a region-wide network of lawyers in the Asia Pacific.
APLI provides access to information on our organization and activities, as well as useful resources fostering research, including legal publications and materials on these webpages. We are deeply grateful to you for your continuous visits of these pages and for your interest in the activities of APLI.
