Why CPG?

CPG offers a unique and enriching working environment at the interface between academic institution and regional think tank.

We provide assistance regarding visas and accommodation close to the university. Moreover, our friendly staff can give practical advice and assistance in various matters, such as transportation, food, and Thai culture. We usually have more than one legal clerk/intern at a time, which is great for sharing experiences on living in Bangkok.

We are located at the Faculty of Law, Thammasat University, in Bangkok. The campus provides possibilities for recreational activities such as fitness and running.

The university is located in Phra Nakhorn in the most prestigious part of Bangkok, adjacent to Sanam Luang and the Grand Palace. The offices of the Supreme Court of Thailand as well as of the Council of State are in the immediate neighborhood. Vibrant streets and small alleys with restaurants, street food and bars are in walking distance.
