President, TLBU Graduate School of Law    

   President   LYOU Byung-Hwa

The key concept for the 21st Century is "regional cooperation and global cooperation". has been long striving to find an answer for securing global peace and security. As an international law professor he learned the importance of regional and global cooperation as the infrastructure of stable peace and prosperity.

President LYOU served as a diplomat for the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs prior to his appointment as professor of international law at Korea University. After extensive experience as a diplomat and an international law professor, he was convinced that regional cooperation among Asian countries would certainly strengthen them and thus improve their standing within the international community, where Asia has thus far not been too concerned. Educating elite students from various parts of Asia would be the starting point for Asian development, which President LYOU thinks will open new opportunities.
