Abstract:     
The core of this article is our May 2000 Report to the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Korea. The Report reviews South Korea's corporate governance system and recommends legal reforms to improve Korean corporate governance and protect against a repeat of Korea's governance-related financial crisis of 1997-1998. The Report's principal recommendations include enhancing the role of public company boards of directors, strengthening independent director and non-interested shareholder review of related party transactions, and requiring cumulative voting and preemptive rights for public companies. The Introduction by Bernard Black that precedes the Report discusses the ongoing transition in Korean corporate governance, and the political and economic forces behind that transition.
