The Hanoi Law University and the University of Arizona in the US have partnered to offer a dual degree, with programmes beginning in the fall of this year.

Students can earn a Bachelor's of Law (LLB) from Hanoi Law University and a Bachelor's of Arts (BA) in Law from the University of Arizona in only four years and entirely in Việt Nam.

Through this innovative partnership, high-performing undergraduates will complete two degrees at once, including the top LLB credential in Viet Nam, while also gaining the prestige of earning a BA in Law from a fully-accredited and highly-ranked US university.

Professors at Hanoi Law University and the University of Arizona (UA) will deliver courses in person at the Hanoi campus using advanced technology.

Students will receive instruction in civil and criminal procedures, contracts and torts, and may also take courses in evidence, legal research and lawyering skills. These will prepare them to practice international law in Viet Nam or to continue their legal studies abroad.

Dual degree students will be able to access UA resources and become part of the UA’s network of 295,000 alumni around the world, which includes judges, CEOs and government officials.

Students can develop English proficiency through the dual degree program and may seamlessly transfer to the UA campus in Tucson, Arizona for a summer, semester or longer.

The UA currently ranks 52 out of 18,000 universities, according to the Center for World University Rankings, making it a top one-percent university worldwide. — VNS
