The loophole is to be found in yourself and in the reality of Thai organizations. If you are content to work illegally, there are companies and schools galore that will hire you to do so.
People on this board, who will play up the illegality angle when someone like yourself asks what you have asked, will otherwise freely hand out advice to "teachers" intending to take private students and not hammer away at the illegality of doing so at all.
Well, rest assured, I won't be one of the "teachers" you're concerned about. I have no intention of being on "Locked Up Abroad" nor do I want to jeopardize my position with the NGO. As I've previously stated, I posted my questions without properly researching the visa issue. Shame on me. I'll just have to limit my diet to ramen and eggs
Land, get settled. See which way is up.
Leave the cart behind the horse. TIT. Many things are possible and this is NOT the Litigious States of America.
You can research till you are blue in the face and it will mean nothing if the man behind the desk says no (because he didn't have his morning tea yet).
On the flip side, if the rice harvest on the family farm was good and he says yes, then the stuff you dig up won't matter either.
I believe that a JD (Juris Doctor) is equivalent to a PhD, not a Masters, (though I might be wrong!) As for the rest, you should be getting a Work Permit as part of your NGO work. In theory, you can add additional workplaces to that Work Permit, but in practice I don't know of anyone who has actually done so. So, extra work will probably be illegal. You might want to find out how much your stipend will be. If you can actually live on it, say 30K or up, then you probably won't have to worry about extra work.
As for discrimination, if you are Thai-American or Filipino-American, you will probably face discrimination. If you are Chinese or Japanese American, you are less likely to be discriminated against.... assuming that the Thai Admin can tell the difference that is!

ydesq, A suggestion from another attorney. Have you thought about doing some drafting, etc. over the internet with your firm while you are in Thailand?
