Professor Robert Lawless recently traveled to Thailand to speak about the U.S. bankruptcy law as part of seminars on the readiness of Thailand reorganization law, as that country prepares to join the ASEAN Economic Community. On August 6, he spoke in the chambers of the Thai Supreme Court. In attendance were Supreme Court justices law clerks and court personnel. On August 7, he spoke at the Judicial Training Institute to judges working the Court of Appeal, the Central Bankruptcy Court, and the Civil Court as well as public prosecutors, lawyers, bankruptcy trustees, university lecturers, and law students. The talks were translated into the Thai language by Kanok Jullamon (J.S.D. '13), who works as a judge attached to the Bankruptcy Division of the Supreme Court.
