Vietnam’s Judicial Academy has opened a new center to train Vietnamese commercial lawyers to successfully represent the government and Vietnamese enterprises in cases abroad, and in international negotiations. The Cooperative Training Center for International Trade Lawyers, part of a sweeping ten-year initiative approved by the prime minister in 2010 to improve international integration in the legal field, was officially launched on March 29, 2014.
Tilleke & Gibbins donated VND 30 million (about USD 1,400) to support the center, and will provide lawyers on an ongoing basis to teach classes. Vietnam Managing Director Thomas J. Treutler and attorney Le Xuan Loc were honored to attend the grand opening ceremony of the training center on behalf of Tilleke & Gibbins.
The Judicial Academy, established under the Ministry of Justice, provides professional training for judges, lawyers, bailiffs, notaries, and other officials in Vietnam, and conducts research to serve the activities of the ministry.
