On Monday 1 August 2016, Judge Kee Jurng Kim, President of the Supreme Court Library of Korea and Presiding Judge of Seoul High Court visited the Law Bod to sign a Memorandum of Understanding between the institutions. This act of generosity means the Law Bod will be able to support Korean legal studies far more comprehensively.
