The legal aid delivery system is connecting various institutes for legal aid and people that demand legal service. And the legal aid delivery system considers both cost of delivery and satisfaction of consumers. The well-organized legal aid network is essential for the efficient legal aid delivery system. Consumers of legal aid can receive one-stop service through the well-organized legal aid network. There are a number of institutes for legal aid, so a control tower is necessary to organize the legal aid network and provide one-stop legal aid. But there is no control tower in Korea. A control tower should be most accessible to consumers and independent from the state to guarantee access to justice. In this respect,Korea Legal Aid Corporation is the most proper institute for a control tower. Korea Legal Aid Corporation needs to allot and control functions of other institutes for legal aid, Home-doctors of Ministry of Justice, and pro bono lawyers. Korea Legal Aid Corporation also needs to establish local centers for direct legal advice and general legal aid centers for one-stop legal service to consumers. It is especially important to the access to justice. And legal clinics of law schools are useful resources for the legal aid network.
