ICR Center National Collegiate Innovation-Competition-Regulation Competition Award Summary

The ICR Center hosted the very first presentation ceremony of the winning paper for the ICR Center Nationwide Collegiate Innovation Competition Regulation research paper contest on October 26th. The nationwide competition was introduced this year in order to present ways for law studies can grant opportunities of economic and social advancement. In addition, the contest was designed to encourage students’ creative and pluralistic research abilities.

 

In this research paper contest, contestants came from ten different universities around the nation, and a total of 16 papers were submitted. The level of competition was stifling, and the judges managed to move on to selecting a total of six winning papers. The contest winners eventually presented their papers at a separate awards ceremony hosted by the ICR Center.

  

The awards ceremony hosted for the winning participants was attended by the Korea University School of Law Director, Shin Young Ho - ICR Center Manager, Yu Jin Hui - ICR Center Assistant Manager, Kim Yeon Tae, Attorney Lee Sang Jik (Bae, Kim & Lee LLC) - Attorney Choi Ji Hyun (Kim & Chang LLC), Korea University School of Law professor - Lee Hwang, Korea University School of Law professor - Lee Hui Jung, along with other individuals related to this field of study. During the commentary assessment part of the ceremony, Professor Lee Hwang and Professor Lee Hui Jung put forth much praise for the winners, highlighting the the possibility of them developing into legal professionals in the near future.

 

The winners of this particular contest were Lee Dong Joo – Ha Hui Bong (Chungbuk University School of Law), Noh Hyun Sook (Korea University Department of Law doctoral program), and Yoon Ho Sang (Korea University School of Law). Participation awards went to Kwon Do Hyun (Ajou University School of Law), Yoon Hyung Mo – Yoon Sung Mo (Korea University Department of Humanities – Dongguk University Department of Philosophy), and Shin Sang Min (Korea University School of Law doctoral program).

 

Unfortunately, none of the papers have qualified the standards required for the top prize or the Korea University President’s Prize. In replacement, the Chief of Korea University School of Law Doctoral Program Award was given to an additional participant. For the top three winners, the Chief of Korea University School of Law Doctoral Program Award and a prize money of 2,000,000KRW was given. For the Participation Award, a certificate from the Korea University School of Law Doctoral Program Chief and prize money of 1,000,000KRW was given to the awardees. The winning papers are planned to be included in the ICR Center’s Regulations and Law Policies textbook, which is on schedule to be published next spring. In addition, awardees who are enrolled in a school of law will be given the opportunity submit a recommendation letter highlighting the successes achieved through this competition, when applying for an internship position at a sponsor law firm.

 

The ICR Center and its sponsor law firms are aiming to continuously discover nationwide talent in the study of law through such competitions in the future.
