[KIM & CHANG] Second Law Academy of 2017 at Gyeongsan Multicultural Family Support Center

February 2018

On October 31, 2017, Kim & Chang Committee for Social Contribution hosted its second Multicultural Family Law Academy for 2017, a “mobile” legal service for multicultural families in Korea, in the City of Gyeongsan in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.  The first session was held in the City of Gimje in Jeollabuk-do Province earlier in 2017.

At the Gyeongsan Multicultural Family Support Center, Kim & Chang attorneys, labor law specialists, and other experts led a series of lectures designed to provide key legal information on various issues facing multicultural families, including real estate (e.g., housing leases), labor relations, marriage and divorce, nationality, and naturalization. 

Many immigrant women who moved to Korea through international marriage came with their children or husbands to the academy, and actively participated in the event in a lively Q&A session.

In particular, during the lecture on labor relations, many inquired about childcare leave, unemployment benefits, retirement benefits, and other employment-related issues.  The attendees also showed great interest in minimum wage policies and on general information about wage contracts.

Since hosting its first lecture in Chungcheongbuk-do Province in 2014, the Multicultural Family Law Academy has been supporting multicultural families adjust to Korean culture and society.
