A joint committee of private entities working jointly with the government has decided to hire a foreign legal expert to help in the government’s ongoing law reform, Suvit Maesincee, secretary to the supreme committee on reform, reconciliation, and national strategy said on Wednesday.

Scott Jacobs, president of Jacobs, Cordova & Associates, who worked for the South Korean government as its legal adviser and helped it reform several laws in the country, has been hired, Suvit said.

The government expected the company to take three to six months to complete the job, Suvit added.

Law reform is part of the government’s critical reform effort and it is being addressed along with other critical sectors in the new charter.

Suvit said the reform preparation committee decided today that the supreme body would still be in place although new mechanisms for reform plans and the national strategy would be set up following the new law promulgation. This was to help steer critical reform work, including law reform, he said.

Prorgress in law reform would be subject to the supreme body’s consideration around the end of this month when it convenes, he said.
