The Thailand Law Forum (TLF) was established in 1997 as part of an effort by Thai and American law professors to provide an online English-language resource of Thailand law and academic articles concerning Thai law. TLF’s objectives include: 1) providing an unbiased and comprehensive base of information concerning Thailand and Southeast Asian law and society and 2) to promote better governance and social justice through the dissemination of information and encouragement of dialogue on important legal and social issues.
TLF originally included: a Thailand Law Database and online English translations of relevant Thai laws and treaties and an online law journal. In 2002, a legal news section was added and by 2007, Thai Supreme Court opinions became a regular feature; in 2009 an English and Thai language blog publishing updates and opinions on important Thai law and society issues was incorporated.
In 2007, the TLF began accepting feature articles appealing to a wider audience, evolving from an academic and trade journal for law professors, judges and attorneys to an online magazine that appealed to professional scholars and researchers as well as readers interested in more general information concerning Thailand law and policy. The TLF continued to be responsible for the bi-annual publication of the Thailand Law Forum Journal, an academic resource specializing in Thai law analysis by prominent Thai and international academics. As of 2009, Thailand Law Forum Journal has been renamed the Thailand Journal of Law and Policy and its governance has been transferred to the Foundation for Social Development and Legal Reform (FSDLR), a Thai non-profit organization composed of law professors and professionals who act as the journal’s editorial board.
