For the new leaders for a new age!
Now is the era of globalization that drives us into unlimited competition in the industry of knowledge information. The new age requires the true leaders with new vision and philosophy, which also applies to the industry of construction. To survive in the age of survival of the fittest, there is no other alternative but to prepare for the future thoroughly with philosophy and vision.
We are Korea’s only graduate school that fosters the experts for construction conflicts, appraisal and policy.
We have invited professional lawyers, construction field CEOs, National Assembly’s construction experts, Administration’s best theoretical and practical policy makers on the construction part. We have organized the subjects focused on practical cases, which encompass all the on-site problems. The subjects have not yet been opened by any other university. They are educated using the team teaching method that a subject is taught for each theme by the theme’s expert. Such education, consumer-oriented, not professor-oriented, is operated in the curriculum customized for fostering the professional manpower for global construction legal matters.

The Graduate School of Legal Affairs in Construction will contribute to the development of construction industry by playing a role of enabling the experts in construction legal fields to communicate with each other together with the Research Center for Construction Legal Affairs.
We will faithfully play a role of an information center, as the information on construction legal matters are accumulated, presented and generated.
To this end, we make efforts to cooperate with domestic and foreign institutions and organizations concerned. We will make you experts on construction legal matters with the best educational conditions.
We hope your dream will come true.
