Since the Republic of China was founded, generations of members of the legal community had attempted to develop a healthy and independent judiciary. Since the 1990s, constitutionalism has been practised in Taiwan, and judicial reform has achieved a considerable degree of success. This lecture will review the historical development of the judiciary in Taiwan, and explore the judicial role in the maintenance of the constitutional order and the protection of human rights in Taiwan.

Professor Weng Yueh-sheng is a law graduate of the National Taiwan University in Taipei and Heidelberg University in Germany. He began his academic career at the National Taiwan University in 1966. In 1972-1999, he served as a Grand Justice of the Judicial Yuan (constitutional court) in Taiwan. In 1999-2007, he was Chief Justice of Taiwan. He has taught generations of students and published extensively in the field of public law.

中國傳統中沒有現代意義的司法權觀念,司法為統治者的工具。民國初期以來,多個世代的法律人致力於建立健全獨立的司法權。雖然1946年的《中華民國憲法》建立了憲政體制下的司法機構,但直到1990年代,台灣才進入正常憲政狀態,司法改革取得成果,審判獨立與司法品質逐漸受國際社會肯定。本講座將回溯司法權在台灣的發展歷程,並探討法院在台灣維護憲政秩序和保障人權等方面的角色。

翁岳生教授畢業於台北國立台灣大學法律學系,後往德國深造,獲海德堡大學法學博士學位。1966年起任教於台灣大學法律系,1972年至1999年任司法院大法官,1999年至2007年任司法院院長。著有《行政法與現代法治國家》(1976年)、《法治國家之行政法與司法》(1994年)、《行政法》(上、下冊)(1998年編著)、《行政訴訟法逐條釋義》(2003年主編)等書。於2002年獲選為英國高等法律研究學會(Society for Advanced Legal Studies)榮譽會員,2007年獲總統頒授“中正勳章”。FULL DETAILS
