January 27, 2022

Starting in the third trimester of the 2021 academic year, the Laws Program of the School of Political Science and Laws has welcomed a new member, Dr. Wasin Yimyam, who will be responsible for teaching public law, constitutional law, and administrative law courses.

Dr. Wasin has a Doctor of Laws degree from the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) and specializes in public law. His PhD dissertation was funded by the Office of the Constitutional Court and the NIDA. It was obtained a level ‘Good’ doctorate dissertation award by the National Research Office (NRCT) and the NIDA.

Dr. Wasin has a strong scholarly interest in cybercrime concerns in addition to his competence in public law. A case study for his previous research was a study on the B.E. 2555 community rights protection under the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand, critical examining a case of handicraft copyright infringement in Tambon Ban Pao, San Kamphaeng District, Chiang Mai. It was a research initiative supported by the Annual State Budget. He has also written an academic article titled “Constitutional Review by the Supreme Court in Japan” published in the Chulalongkorn Law Journal (2021).

Dr. Wasin worked as a lecturer at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University from 2009 until 2021 before moving south to Tha Sala. Apart from teaching and research work as his primary responsibilities at Chaing Mai, he was actively involved in a variety of noteworthy academic activities. Among these were roles as a special lecturer for short courses in law training and as a speaker and moderator for academic forums on legal problems and current concerns such as cyber threats, digital technology usage, and the “New Normal.” He also worked as a special instructor, offering legal seminars to local government officials, among other things.

In addition to starting to teach certain courses based on his expertise, Dr. Wasin intends to undertake continuing research projects as soon as he begins working at the School of Political Science and Laws. The initial academic plan was to conduct research on “Parental Jurisdiction to Bring Personal Information on Minors onto the Internet: A Comparative Study of the United States, the European Union, and Thailand.”
