A judicial officer corruption, especially the privileges of former post which distorts judicial action by conspiring between the incumbent judicial officials and lawyers from former judicial officials, brought extreme distrust on Korean judicial system. As long as the public judicial distrust continues, it is obvious that nomocracy(rule of law) can
not be established. As the privileges of former post have not eradicated only with the self-purification efforts of the judicial officials, now it is time to arrange a reasonable reform plan and accomplish this by agreement between the national assembly, the government, and the community.
Following are the significant countermeasure suggesting for eradication of legal professionals’ corruption. First, practice of a lawyer of upper law bureaucrat(supreme courtjustice, constitutional courtjustice, state attorney general, chief judge of a high court and higher than inspection level)should be banned. This action is beyond its
means(This is a very symbolic action). Judges and prosecutors who want High-ranking post should make choice between ‘honor and wealth’ by themselves. Second, a more fundamental approach is that practice of a lawyer of judge and prosecutor should be banned to prevent discharge of former judicial officials by adopting lifetime judge and
prosecutor system. To do this, extending retirement age of judge and prosecutor to 70 and abolishing promotion system within the court and the prosecution is needed.
Judges and prosecutor who are free from promotion and retirement are expected to perform freely from the inside and the outside influence. Third, foundation of special investigation agency is necessary to investigate corruption of judges and prosecutors dependently. Fourth, authority of prosecution which the lobby is concentrated in
criminal cases should be reduced due to monopoly of investigation and prosecution and the prosecution should be set up as prosecution agency. Fifth, law distortion crime which can punish corruption of judges and prosecutors should be established in criminal law and also, regulation that suspend or exclude the proceedings of the statute
of limitations regarding action of distorting the law must be established. Sixth, a system that can be implemented without difficulty are the following. After retirement of judges and prosecutors, extend restriction on acceptance of case from 1 year to 3 years and make criminal punishment possible for the act of not issuing the attorney.
Moreover, if a judge or prosecutor contacts concerned person, it should be mandatory to report it. Also, organization and authority of Legal Ethics and Professional Conduct Council should be intensified. at the same time human composition of former judicial officials should be diversified. Finally, it is necessary to reinforce the punishment
regarding corruption of lawyers in Korean Bar Association.
