A University of Wisconsin Law School graduate is the new dean of one of Thailand’s leading law schools.
Pareena Supjariyavatr Srivanit was appointed dean last fall of Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Law. She is the Bangkok-based university’s 11th law dean, and the first woman to hold the post.
Srivanit earned her Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D)—UW Law’s most advanced degree—in 2002. She is a scholar on international trade and environmental law, whose Law School dissertation was titled, “Trade, the environment and developing countries: a quest for balance.”
After obtaining her S.J.D., she held administrative positions in the graduate law programs at Chulalongkorn University, where she has taught criminal law, international environmental law and international business law. She also partnered with UW Law’s East Asian Legal Studies Center to provide exchange opportunities between Chulalongkorn and UW Law faculty and students.
