We also expected the graduates from the International Program at Thammasat University to meet all the legal requirements for the practice of law in Thailand upon graduation. Our optimism was based on the presence of faculty members who held advanced degrees in law from leading law schools around the world and experiences gained from teaching law in English in their English-based LL.M. program in Business Law (International Program). These experiences are bolstered by the teaching and exchange programs maintained by the Faculty of Law with law schools in France, Canada, UK, USA, Australia, Singapore, Japan and China. ” Assoc.
