The Supreme Court Clinic mainly takes the cases appealed to the Supreme Court and also deals with the constitutional appeals and filing for the Constitutional Court's unconstitutional judgment. The clinic primarily aims to provide free legal aids to the vulnerable and public-interest groups by taking their cases or take part in defending cases with social impacts. The defense for the Supreme Court or Constitutional Court cases are mainly in writing, and students can participate in the entire process of the cases during the semester as it is relatively short-term based on the composition of ‘Record review—Client interview—Research—Discussion—appellate brief, appeals for the unconstitutional judgement, petition to the Constitutional Court, etc.’
