67 of the 96 judges appointed this year are woman. Woman judges now comprise 21.5% of the total judiciary.
The selection of judges is determined by averaging the judicial exam score with the grade point average at the Judicial Research and Training Institute (2 year training program). The highest grades are able to be offered jobs as judges and the second highest as prosecutors. Most Korean judges and prosecutors begin their service in their late 20s.
