On February 8th, 2018, the Ministry of Justice held the finals of the 4th “Law of Faith” Conference of Law Enforcement, and the Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) team won the grand prize for proposing a legislative bill that supports pregnant women and anonymous births. The conference was held for the first time in September 2014, originally targeting only law school students. Since 2015, however, undergraduate and graduate students have also been able to participate in the contest. The Conference of Law Enforcement is held to give future generations an opportunity for gaining the basic experience of drafting and revising legislative bills and to reflect the ideas of young students in judicial policy making. In the 4th Conference of Law Enforcement, 40 teams consisting of 119 undergraduates, graduates, and law school students participated, with only 10 teams passing the strict evaluations and making it to the finals. Given that the winning teams at the conference for the past three years all consisted of law school students only, the grand prize winners of the SKKU team consisted of undergraduate students from the Department of Economics, Political Science and Diplomacy, Korean Language and Literature, and the School of Global Leader, meant that their win was especially meaningful. The SKKU team specifically dealt with establishing counseling centers to counsel and support women suffering from unwanted pregnancies.
