MEKONG REGION LAW SCHOOL CONSORTIUM

Cambodia - Guangxi - Laos - Myanmar - Thailand - Vietnam - Yunnan

CMLC is promoting a formal grouping of regional law schools to work together on joint research and publication, student exchanges, scholarship support, and annual symposia on issues of law, public policy and legal education in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). By creating such a network, CMLC believes schools will be able to better improve their overall academics, share ideas, and raise awareness of the importance of the GMS. Collaboration will help in the quest to improve regional legal education; education designed to prepare students for the challenges of solving/mitigating the GMS’s myriad of legal problems and improving the lives of citizens of GMS countries.

Toward this end, CMLC has been actively facilitating partnerships between our main Asia partner faculty, Faculty of Integrated Social Sciences, Khon Kaen University Nongkhai Campus (KKU-FISS) and other law schools in the Consortium members now include Hue University of Law (Vietnam);  Pannasastra University of Cambodia, (Faculty of Law and Public Policy); and National University of Laos (Faculty of Law and Political Science) and Yadanabon University (Law Department in Mandalay, Myanmar).

When five or more schools formally join the Consortium, a multilateral agreement among the schools will govern the operation of the Consortium.  The Consortium will then manage future annual symposia programs and the Mekong Region Law and Public Policy Research Paper Series. Funders that support the Consortium will be invited to have representatives on the Consortium Board.

Please help us bring this opportunity to as many GMS students as possible
