This research paper presents an innovative case study from Khon Kaen University's Faculty of Law, aimed at transforming legal education for the 21st century. The study examines the curriculum design & development under the LAW framework (Learning, Active, Wisdom) to align legal education with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 16. The transformation emphasizes adaptability and resilience, focusing on empowering legal minds for a sustainable future and social​justice.

The study introduces the law school's unique projects that serve as learning centers for legal professionals. These centers aim to instill values like moral management, human rights, and economic sustainability. Initiatives such as the Arayasuk Nittidham Institution for Lifelong Learning (ANIL) and the Human Rights and Sustainable Learning Center provide multi-faceted education, blending law with ethical leadership and sustainable development.

One crucial element of the study is addressing the evolving questions about the meaning of law in an uncertain future, positioning legal professionals to navigate resilience and sustainability. The paper also covers the use of technology like AI and ChatGPT for enhancing the learning experience.

The research highlights Khon Kaen University's role in driving systemic changes in legal education, not only in Thailand but as a model for broader legal educational transformation. This comprehensive approach aims to produce "practice-ready lawyers" that are also "tomorrow’s lawyers," adaptable and committed to social justice and sustainable development.
