On 5 August 2019, Asian Australian Lawyers Association (Vic) and the Asian Law Centre at Melbourne Law School held a presentation by Judge Injun Hwang on “Enforce Your Judgement in South Korea”. Judge Hwang shared his insights and research about recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in the Republic of Korea. This was covered in four parts: the scope of the application, procedure for the enforcement in Korea, substantive requisites of the enforcement, and analysis of Korean Courts’ Decision.
Judge Hwang was later joined by Professor Richard Garnett from Melbourne University to compare the Australian and South Korean regimes and the importance of the Hague Convention in this area.
Thank you Judge Hwang and Asian Law Centre for collaborating with AALA (Vic).
