On October 1, 2002 the Faculty of Law at Chulalongkorn University opened the first university Law Clinic in Thailand. The Clinic provides selected legal research and analysis to the University and the general public for selected business transactions.

Law firms have continually expressed concern that law students are graduating without sufficient basic legal skills. The Law Clinic was established to respond to a “gap” in the legal eduction that exists not only at Chulalongkorn, but at all universities: While the regular course work is extensive, students are graduating without sufficient development of basic legal skills and practical training. They have not been provided with sufficient exposure to the real demands that will be placed on them as practicing lawyers. Further, there is minimal opportunity apply their legal knowledge with real ‘hands on experience’. The Law Clinic has been established to fill the “gap” by creating opportunities to help both the students and the legal community by training and managing the students perform ‘real life’ legal assignments in the private sector.

In its first year of operations, the initial component of the Law Clinic is the “Lawyer Skills and Practical Training” Program. The program is 32 hours of intensive “participation” problem solving exercises that are based on legal assignments from the “real world”. The Program has been designed to give the students in:

      • Legal Research
      • Legal Analysis
      • Legal Interpretation
      • Legal Memo Writing
      • Contract Analysis and Drafting
      • Contract Management and Implementation
      • Internal Dispute Resolution
      • Lawyer Conduct and Liability
      • Case Management
      • Professional Ethics
      • Client Interviews and Counselling

Forty-one of the top students in the Faculty of Law are
enrolled in the “Lawyer Skills and Practical Training” Program. The modules are presented in English to provide an “international element” to the Program.

There are XX Faculty of Law Members participating in the Law Clinic who either provide services directly to the University and the private sector and/or supervise the students work product.
