“THE LAWNCH PAD for lawyers” – Season 3

We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the “THE LAWNCH PAD for lawyers” – Season 3. This program, which took place during 4 – 8 June 2024, was held once again 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 of great value 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 Visitsak Arunsuratpakdee, legal director of True Corporation and Khun Pajaree Thongvanit, executive vice president, group legal and compliance of CIMB THAI. The winners were students from Chulalongkorn University, Ramkhamhaeng University, and Thammasat University. In addition, an individual award was granted to Khun Nanthasawat Wongrianniyom from Thammasat University.

Chisako Takaya and Jessada Sawatdipong, co-managing partners, commented “We are delighted by the success of this program which has now become an established highlight event for Thai law students every year. We would like to thank our team for once again showing great enthusiasm and dedication in supporting the next generation of lawyers to develop valuable skills and knowledge for their careers”.
