K-Drama & Court Reform: Miss Hammurabi – Social Change Through Popular Culture: Insights from Korea

April 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

About the Event:

Can conscientious judges from different generations – the young and idealistic, like Miss Hammurabi, and the older and worldly-wise, like her supervisor – fight corruption and unfair treatment in the courts?

Join us for a two-part discussion of key scenes from Miss Hammurabi.

This highly acclaimed drama, written by a sitting judge from Seoul, draws on real cases to explore the legal and ethical dilemmas judges face in an imperfect world.


About the Speaker:

Dr. Thomas Samuelian is former Dean of AUA’s College of Humanities & Social Sciences and LL.M. Program. A practicing attorney, Dr. Samuelian has an abiding interest in how societal attitudes, public awareness and role models promote the rule of law through voluntary compliance.
