Chicago-Kent Program in Chiangmai, Thailand


pongpat
Chicago Kent has been working with Thai legal instiitutions in collaborative programs for ten years, from 2005. Since 2009, Chicago Kent has worked in collaboration with Thailand Office of Judiciary in a special LL.M. program for judges in Thai Court of Justice. Like Chicago-Kent/Sripstum University program, every year from January to May, 4 law professors travel from Chicago to teach 4 law courses at judicial Training Institute in Bangkok. So far there are numbers of Thai judges went to Chicago kent to complete their LL.M. after completing the mentioned 4 law courses.
Unfortunately, the mentioned program has been organized for court of justice judges only. Any other lawyers including international lawyers are not eligible to attend, it's court of justice's internal training program.
There's a sign of good news for Thai lawyers as well as lawyers from our ASEAN, Chicago Kent is now in the process to discuss with the law school's business partners. Chicago-Kent's special LL.M. Program will resume but not in Bangkok as it used to be. It's Chiangmai, one of world's most tourist attractive location, will be the new location to open special program for practicing lawyers from Thailand and international.
If you are a lawyers from aboard, you will spend around 3 months in Chiangmai, other than earning 10 credits for you LL.M. In Chicago, you will enjoy Chiangmai friendly atmosphere, Chinese new year and, most of all, Songkran (water) Festival.
Last but not least, as you know, cost of study and cost of living here in Chiangmai is just 35 percent of what you have to pay in the US.
Interesting? please plan you trip to Chiangmai by early of next year and keep in touch.

The new enrollment for the program - Chicago-Kent Program in Chiang Mai or otherwise known as 'the CMU-CK Program' - starts now until early November 2014. Late application may be considered. The name of the degree is "LL.M. in US International and Transnational Law". The original name was "LL.M. in International and Comparative Law". However, the structure and content have not been changed.

We are offering a special tuition fee reduction to students who commit to spend a full academic year at CK. See below,

The CMU-CK Program is a split LL.M. Program with 2 Options: 4-Course-Option and 2-Course-Option. Prospective students are free to choose, when apply, the option that suits their career necessity and demand.

The 4-Course-Option (1 semester at CMU + 1 semester at CK):

The students will spend 1 semester at CMU taking 4 courses (10 credits). Once students successfully complete the four courses in Chiang Mai, they are awarded a certificate and advanced standing toward Chicago-Kents LL.M. degree. The students then come to study at Chicago-Kent for one semester and complete the remaining 14 credits required to earn the LL.M. degree. The 4 courses at Chiang Mai are exclusively taught by the top 4 professors from Chicago-Kent College of Law.

At CK, the students are free to choose any upper law courses, i.e., not basic JD courses, to complete the remaining 14 credits and to suite their interests, academic and professional needs.

Tuition fee, excluding room and board, at Chiang Mai is 4,900 USD, and approximately 21,000 USD at Chicago-Kent.
If the student commits to spend a full academic year at CK , the tuition fee will be 26,100USD.

The 2-Course-Option (2 courses taught at CMU + 2 semesters at CK):

The students will take 2 preparatory courses or non-credit at CMU, notably, 1) Legal English Skills for Lawyers, 2) Common Law Method. The two preparatory courses are designed to prepare the students who have no common law background and have gone through a different teaching method to get ready to a serious study at CK. The students will spend 2 semesters for 24 credits at CK to earn the LL.M. in US International and Transnational Law. In effect, the students will spend 1 full academic year at CK.

The tuition fees, excluding room and board, are as follows: 2,900USD at CMU; 26,100USD at CK for 2 semesters.

The Faculty of Law, Chiang Mai University, is one of the top law schools in Thailand located in the historic and second large city in the North of Thailand - Chiang Mai. The 21st Century has added the commercial vibrancy to Chiang Mai's unassuming charm and beauty. However, the cost of living is relatively moderate.
