Jurisdictions and Power of the Constitutional Court of Korea: Cases and Experiences Learnt from the Constitutional Court of Korea
- Constitutional adjudication can be carried out either by separate judicial organ which is apart from and not part of the ordinary court system or by apex court of the country through the ordinary court system. Countries practicing the Romano-Germanic legal system adopt the former system in its term of constitutional review while English Common Law countries establish the latter as judicial review, with two exceptional countries of South Africa and Myanmar which have specialized constitutional courts. Republic of Korea has adopted the constitutional review system in one form or another since the adoption of its first modern Constitution in 1948. This paper intends to give brief picture of the jurisdictions and power of Constitutional Court of Korea together some important cases and experiences learnt from the said Court for an academic purpose.
