The establishment of the Judicial Officials Training Institute on April 25 1895, heralded the beginning of a new era of modern professional legal education in Korea. A revolutionary framework for the modern legal education was created by separating the judiciary from the executive branch. In 1995, the SNU School of Law and the Alumni Association of the School of Law embarked on the construction of the Centennial Building, in commemoration of the centennial anniversary of modern legal education in Korea.
The Centennial Building was constructed for the period of September 1994 through December of 1996. It is a three-story stone building and occupies 2,131 square meters. The building consists of a circular stair-shaped lecture hall accommodating 270 seats, a mid-sized lecture hall with 100 seats, a digital library, an Alumni Memorial Hall, a reading room and various high-tech facilities provided under the patronage of Samsung. Numerous academic events and lectures utilizing electronic facilities are held in the Centennial Building.
