Presenting opinions on Local Government Legislation
When the local government plans its local statutes, they can have any inquiry on the violation of any upper law or regulations or any difficulty with lawmaking skills. Or at the enforcement stage, they can have inquiries on the interpretation itself. In these cases, MOLEG responds to the local government’s requests and supports interpretation and enforcement of local statutes.

Legislative Education
Legislative education to public officials
National statutes and local statutes are increasing and also the administrative litigation cases are increasing. Therefore, the legal profession is required for public officials. In such a situation, for protecting civil rights of the public in advance and for realizing public law education, we are starting the systematic legislative education for the public officials in field.

We introduced the education suited to officials and differentiated learning.Moreover, with the Legal Education web site, we extended cyber education and published courses for 11subjects, such as Constitutional Law, providing opportunities for learning not only to the officials, but also to the general citizens.
