Questions? You’re covered.

Our program is taught by both Thai and foreign lecturers. It is virtually a mirror of our Thai LL.B program with an emphasis on business law. since a large number of the courses we offer focus on Thai law, it is essential that they are taught by Thai law experts. Our law faculty has more than 25 full-time academic members, and numerous adjunct lecturers who were educated in English-speacking countries and fluent in English. However, there are also a number of courses which relate to international law, international business law, foreign law and foreign legal principles. These courses are to be partly or entirely taught by foreign visiting professors and lecturers from prominent law schools mostly in Tnglish-speaking countries. 

Yes, we do. If you google 'Thai law' you would be surprised to find only a couple of academic books on certain subjects of Thai law. It's a fact that there are a limited amount of English publications on the Thai legal system, but this does not mean that it is impossible to study Thai law in English. We have endeavored to make Thai law accessible to foreigners and ensure that it can be learned in English. We are now working on English publications of Thai law projects aimed at producing English textbooks on various subjects of Thai law and translating the authoritative Thai publications into English. Since modern Thai law was mostly founded on European legal systems.

We can also consult English materials in relation to our model laws, such as German and French private law, criminal law, and public law. Many subjects, for example, international law, international business law, and IT law are universal meaning that our students can use the same textbooks as used by English or American law students. 

There is a wide range of opportunities for graduates of our Program in search of challenging and competitive careers, notably judges, public prosecutors, lawyers, and consultants in a local and international firm, law academics, and researchers in international organizations. 

Our graduates are eligible to apply for a Bar membership for sure.  We are completely confident that graduates from our LL.B. Program in Business Law will be able to pursue a judicial career or a career in public prosecution service as graduates from our Thai LL.B. program are.  

Of course, we do. Our curriculum was designed to facilitate exchange programs and encourage students to spend their fourth academic year studying law abroad.
