“THE LAWNCH PAD for lawyers” – Season 2

We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the “THE LAWNCH PAD for lawyers” – Season 2. This program, which took place during 23- 27 May 2023, was held in collaboration between the Faculty of Law, Chulalongkorn University and Chandler MHM Limited (CMHM). The aim of the program is to provide final year students at law schools in Thailand with unique skills training, which would be useful for their career. The selected enrolled participants were from 9 law schools across Thailand. 

Throughout the program, more than 20 lawyers from Chandler MHM actively engaged in 8 different training sessions. These sessions covered a range of essential non-legal skills necessary for practicing law in a law firm setting, as well as legal skills across various practice areas.

On the final day, a competition was held among the participants who were divided into groups and tasked with providing legal advice in a mock business case. We were honoured to have experienced lawyers in Thailand participating as judges on the panels for this competition, including Khun Siriporn Chaiyasuta, president of Law Chula Alumni Association, Khun Peangpanor Boonklum, senior executive vice president, Office of General Counsel of PTT, and Khun Visitsak Arunsuratpakdee, legal director of True Corporation. The winners were students from Chiang Mai University, Chulalongkorn University, Ramkhamhaeng University, and Thammasat University. In addition, an individual award was granted to Khun Korpong Pongpantarak from Thammasat University.

Reflecting on the program's success, Chisako Takaya and Jessada Sawatdipong, co-managing partners, remarked “As a member of the legal community, we are committed to developing the next generation of legal professionals by sharing with them market leading skills and knowledge. By doing so, we aim to foster the growth and advancement of the legal profession in Thailand”.
