We would like to share a history behind our law firm.
Law Win was established by Jacob (SeungWoo) Lee, the representative attorney of Law Win, following his intensive legal training in 2008 at the Judicial Research and Training Institute (JRTI). Before South Korea adopted a new law school system in the 2010s, JRTI was South Korea’s preeminent government-run institution where judges and prosecutors had trained.
Just a decade ago in South Korea, the egregious human rights violations against civilians, often occurred by law enforcement as lawyers seldom actively participated in the interrogations and investigations to assist the accused.
Mr. Lee strongly believes that those facing criminal prosecution should be given an equal opportunity to obtain high-quality legal services. He resolved to take the initiative in order to rectify judicial errors caused by failures in the criminal justice system. He soon discovered a group of like-minded and passionate lawyers which he rallied together.
