On May 12th, a so-called “new-trial-expert” Lawyer Park Joon Young came to Korea University (KU), giving KU students a lecture about his life as a public defender, at the CJ Law Hall. The lecture lasted two hours from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M., and the seats in the auditorium were filled with curious and motivated students eager to learn about his life.

His experience came to life when he began delivering his speech in an impromptu manner, without any presentation slides or script on his hands. “Those who are not familiar with information are only to be isolated,” Park said, sharing his thought about information disparity between the society’s haves and have-nots. Park also remarked about his last year, when he went bankrupt and was helped by donation. “I felt as if I were on the cliff when I went bankrupt last year. However, though I am not sure if I could use the world ‘value’ in this case, the experience of being bankrupt and getting out of it by crowd-funding kind of increased my value.”

After his lecture came a Q&A session, in which Park took his time to answer the questions that were submitted in advance of the lecture. In response to a question regarding his stance on abolishing the bar exams, he said, “Even though I entered the law field through the bar exam, I am in favor of abolishing it. As far as I know, the initial objective of law schools was to increase the supply for the legal profession. The existing bar exam could not accomplish this objective properly. Nevertheless, we will also have to question this matter in terms of opportunity.”
