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.
