Lesson I: Korean Legal Terms & Phrases

This is a first in a serious of posts I shall make for those wanting to learn a little about Korean legal terms. I shall try to post a lesson every week.   I shall try to make this simple at first.  This may be a useful tool, also, for those that are just learning Korean, since I added a few simple sentence.  If you can’t read Korean characters – learn.  The alphabet is easy to learn and I promise that you shall never be able to pronounce words without learning the Korean alphabet.
