In 1949, the Central Government of ROC moved from Nanking to Taipei. A considerable amount of documents and archives concerning the judicial administrations and various courts’ verdicts were carried along within the boxes belonging to the Supreme Court. Recently, researchers were aware of the value of these documents. They opened up those boxes and digitalized the containing documents. By this project, the researcher intends to examine the records about the personnel management in the judicial institutions within the above-mentioned first-hand archival source. In doing so, the researcher will reconstruct the promotional paths of individuals under the background of particular cases and related verdicts. This study aims to explore the composition of the Supreme Court of ROC before the WWII from the perspective of individual’s biographical factors. The crucial personnel in the judicial system will be examined to see how they applied knowledge and craft of law while dealing with meaningful cases. Further, this study will also discuss the judicial culture, professional ethics and educational quality of the judicial professional personnel at the time, in order to understand the trails of modernization and the transformation of judicial culture.
