Nattakan (Ann) holds a first class honours bachelor of law degree from Chiang Mai University and was involved in the CLE programs while she was a law student. Upon graduation, she became a legal fellow of CLE Foundation and BABSEA CLE (volunteer). Now, having completed her time as a legal fellow of CLE Foundation and BABSEA CLE, Ann works as a legal trainer. In this role her responsibilities include administrative and teaching support for clinic programs throughout South East Asia and providing training for those wishing to become clinical faculty members. Ann also provides valuable services to the community; she assists weekly, when possible, at the Wildflower Legal Education Initiative where she teaches single mothers, of varying ethnicities including Burmese and the people of the hill tribes, their legal rights. She also opens up clinic spaces for addition students and strengthens and enlivens clinical programmes to build a solid foundation of clinical faculty members. These programmes serve to develop the training ground for new clinical faculty, who are making the transition from practice to clinical teaching as well as providing the opportunity for entry level candidates with the time and intellectual space to craft a scholarly agenda that is tied to and symbiotic with clinical teaching and service. Ann has the opportunity to reflect on these experiences, and possibly the prospect of being better positioned in the law school teaching market.
