Hi;
Not sure if you can practice as a "lawyer" here cuz you must pass the exam call "Lawyer License" here. I think it's exclusive for Thai and conduct in Thai language. However you can always work in a law firm as Legal advisor ,consultant, parner and so many other names... There are many foreign lawyers here in Thailand so your opportunity in getting a job here is high.

For the best studies, It will come down to coporate law,contract law, M&A, finance. i think

Hello Alberto
Jack's email address is hjung@kentlaw.edu/. He's very nice and friendly. Just let him know you got his email from me, Pongpat in Bangkok. As I know, in Thailand, license to practice law in court of justice is granted to Thai national only but for the other practice, including court of arbitration, license is no needed. So, it's OK for foreign lawyer to work in Thailand.
If you want any other help, please do feel free to let me know.
Best,
Pongpat

Hello Alberto
They are both, Chula and ABAC, outstanding law school but ABAC is a private law school where tuition fees are usually much higher than the public law school.
Our program, Chicago-Kent Bangkok Program may help you finding easily Thai partners. I wonder if you read my post about Chicago Kent LL.M.program in Bangkok. I also think this could help your wish to work in Thailand easily be reached. The first course, Introduction to American Legal System will be from Jan 14-30, 2008. If you can make a trip, I can let you try our first course without paying tuition fees.
I graduated from Chicago Kent. I was a Thai prosecutor and now am working for Thai Ministry of Justice a the Public Law Specialist. I also work as Chicago Kent's Thai partner in the collaborative program.
If you'd really like to train or practice in Bangkok, I will help talking to my friends, colleagues and partners.
Cheers

Hello Pongpat

First off all I want to thank you for your kindness, You are a very gentle person.
I'm interested to know more about the Chicago-Kent Bangkok Program, specially about the accademic year starting and ending and the application dead line and qualifications of applicants.
I'd like to know everything necessary in order to make the right decision so the course work and tuition fees for the complete LLM program (including Chicago period).
Now I don't have a TOEFL certificate but I shouldn't have any problem to obtain it, anyway I have an USA high school diploma.
Please let me know on time, so I'll try to come to the first course on jennuary 14-30/2008.

Thank You very much again

I also have similar career plans as Alberto, and I would like to know to what extent it is necessary or helpful to complete an LLM in Thailand for people who would like to pursue legal careers in Thailand? Also, how competitive are the LLM programs (particularly the Chula international program) in Thailand as far as admissions?
I am currently pursuing a J.D. at a top-tier law school in the U.S., and I also speak conversational/proficient Thai. Is it possible that I could get a job with a Thai law firm right out of law school, or will I have to get more work experience and/or a Thai LLM?
Any information would be much appreciated so I can figure out what I need to do in the meantime.

Thanks in advance.

I do believe that Jack will be more than happy to answer any question about legal practice in Thailand by foreign lawyer. If you really want to work with Thai law firm, I am happy to introduce you to some of my friend's international law firm. My email address is pongpat@lawyer.com, please do feel free to write me the message. We can even work together in some way. Anyway, guessing from your ability to write in Thai, you must have already had your Thai connections.

Dear y'll,
I have just read your conversation and am interested in the Chicaco-Kent Thailand program. Regarding to your previous comments, what I have known is that a student not having sufficient TOEFL score has to study the intensive english and correlated courses first and then go the the Chicago-Kent college in the US as a LLM student (Am I correct?). Moreover, is it a direct entry means to the Chicaco-Kent law school if I graduate from those courses from Thailand. And the consequent questions are how many semesters I have to enroll in the Chicaco-Kent campus? and will I retrieve the LLM, certificate or Thai's LLM from Chicaco Kent college?.

Actually, may I e-mail to you directly by your provided e-mail.
Best regards,
Jay

Hello Alberto,

In Thailand a foreigner is not allowed to practice law however, most foreign nationals who are licensed lawyers and attorneys who work in Thailand act as a legal advisor or "consultant" to foreign clients.

You may search in JobsDB.com/TH for jobs positions that are available in Thailand. You can also search on the web for Thailand law firms who might hiring.

I hope this information helps you.
