Revitalizing the Law and Development: A Case Study on Land Law in Thailand This study, co-authored by Tim Sawers J.D. and Philip Von Mehren J.D., analyzes the relationship between law and land development. The study urges the reader to re-evaluate the impact legal changes have made on shaping social and economic change in Thailand. The study evaluates Max Weber's typology of legal systems, which presupposes that modern law underpins economic growth, as well as other social theories that have traditionally not accounted for the role of law. After providing a history of the development of Thai land law, including original translations of the ancient Thai Law of three seals, the authors conclude that there is ample evidence that the law is a driving factor in economic and social change in Thailand. In particular, they claim that legal changes played a role in the emergence of commercialized agriculture in Thailand. This reprinting of their case study has been authorized by the Siam Society Jorunal.
