USLawEssentials Law & Language

The USLawEssentials Law & Language Podcast, co-hosted by Stephen Horowitz (Aichi-ken, 1992-94) helps non-native English speaking lawyers and law students improve their English and better understand US law and American legal culture. Many of these short episodes are tied to a legal news event or case in the United States. Others include interviews with multilingual lawyers (including a number of JET alumni.) The shows are hosted by attorneys experienced teaching US law and legal English to students and lawyers from around the world.

Multilingual Lawyer: Yunjeong Hwang

In this latest episode of the USLawEssentials Law & Language Podcast, Daniel Edelson interviews multilingual lawyer, Yunjeong Hwang (

Ms. Hwang is a South Korean attorney who specializes in representing expatriates living in South Korea and people overseas with legal issues related to South Korea. She advocates on behalf of her clients in a wide range of matters, including family law, commercial litigation, cases arising under tort law, and employment disputes.

Ms. Hwang explains how she protects her clients’ rights while remaining sensitive to their language barriers. We learn how a lawyer is very often more than just a person with knowledge of the law, but someone who counsels a client in extraordinarily challenging circumstances.  In addition to sharing examples of her recent cases, Ms. Hwang discusses how she helps international clients navigate the South Korean legal system.
