Chicago partner Brian Rupp will speak about the planned liberalization of the Korean legal market at the “Prosperity Through Free Trade with Korea” seminar on Nov. 8 at Chicago-Kent College of Law. The discussion follows a recent article he co-authored with new Chicago associate Jen Kim, “Opening of the Hermit Kingdom: Liberalization of the Korean Legal Services Market Pursuant to the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement.”

The seminar will highlight the potential benefits of the United States’ recent free trade agreement with South Korea. The seminar, co-sponsored by the U.S.-Korea Business Council, Consulate General of Korea, World Trade Center in Illinois and KOTRA Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, also features speakers from Hyundai, Eli Lilly and the Chicago-Kent College of Law.
