Suthatip Jullamon Tasanachaikul, J.S.D

August 30, 2018

Dr. Tasanachaikul currently works as a judge at the Office of the President of the Supreme Court of Thailand, and the Offices of International Affairs and Judicial Affairs. She obtained a Doctor of the Science of Law degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. She oversees the employment of technology in the facilitation of court administrative tasks to provide efficient services to the people. Government policy and international trends are driving the Court to adopt technology which, it is believed, can achieve tasks in a more cost-effective and timely manner. In addition, when it comes to the judiciary, less human contact within the process is often believed to yield a fairer, bias-free result. The Court’s goal and policy initiative in the past 10 years have been to integrate the use of technology to meet that principle. As a committee member of the Doing Business—a project of the World Bank—Dr. Tasanachaikul believes that while incorporating technology into Court’s work is not easy, it ultimately needs to start somewhere and now is an opportune time.
