SEOUL (Yonhap) — Chief Justice Yang Seung-tae met with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Tuesday to discuss the promotion of human rights and minority rights protection, the South Korean court said.

In the meeting held on the first day of the five-day trip to South Korea by Ginsburg, they talked about the current status of legal exchanges between the two countries and ways to promote those exchanges, a spokesman for the court said.

Ginsburg plans to deliver remarks with Justice Kim So-yeong on the issues of human rights and protecting the rights of minorities on Wednesday.

The U.S. justice is also set to meet with Justice Park Han-chul, the Constitutional Court President.

The visit of the U.S. associate justice here is the second of its kind in 28 years since Sandra Day O’Connor’s visit in 1987.

The 82-year-old is the second female associate justice in U.S. history, well-known for her liberal rulings, such as opposing the prohibition of abortion.

She was the first associate justice to officiate a same-sex wedding in 2013.

Her daughter, Jane Ginsburg, a professor at Columbia Law School, accompanied her on the visit and will participate in a seminar here on copyright law issues.
