President's Greeting

Welcome Message

President Lee Jinsung



Welcome to the website of the Constitutional Court of Korea.


Since its foundation 30 years ago, the Constitutional Court

of Korea has strived to protect human rights and promote

the Rule of Law. We are committed to continue our journey

with an open mind that will serve justice where most

needed.


Not uncommonly, we have witnessed infringements upon

human rights by governmental institutions. Laws that

prohibited marriage between men and women of the same

ancestral surname blocked the legal marriage of more

than 300,000 couples. Family registration systems that

compelled the appointment of a male family head for each

household easily ignored gender equality. Poor prison

conditions to the extent that prisoners were sleeping on

their side next to each other and a blanket ban on

outdoor assembly at night violated human dignity and civil

rights. A former president allowed a civilian to secretly

interfere with state affairs and seek financial profits

by abusing her authority. The Constitutional Court of Korea

has brought all such practices to a halt in its efforts to protect Constitutional principles and safeguard human rights from unconstitutional governmental actions.


Marking our 30 year milestone, the Constitutional Court of Korea is now looking to enter into a new chapter of its history with an ever open mind that respects past tradition and precedents but is unfettered, unprejudiced and open to new ideas - one that will deliberate and declare more substantial and effective justice as guided by our Constitution.


This website provides a variety of information related to our Court, including pending cases and prior decisions. It also facilitates constitutional complaint procedures by serving as a channel for electronic filing and delivery. We hope you find this website helpful in many ways.


The Constitutional Court of Korea will continue in its endeavors to protect human rights, carefully attend to social minorities and realize the Constitutional values of justice and fairness. We are always grateful for your support and encouragement.


Thank you

President Lee Jinsung Sign
