Dr. Sangkul Kim is a Research Fellow at the Centre for International Law Research and Policy (CILRAP) and Part-Time Lecturer at Korea University Graduate School, Department of Law, Seoul. He worked as Associate Legal Adviser at the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (2004-08), as a member of Legal Advisory Section, Lubanga Trial Team, Bemba Trial Team, and Katanga and Ngudjolo Trial Team. In 2015, he received the Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) degree from Georgetown University Law Center under the supervision of Professor David Luban.
