The following projects have been coordinated to aid in Vietnamese Legal Research.

Vietnamese Legal Research Network (VLRN) Online

Supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the VLRN Online aims to:

  • become a rich resource for Australian and international scholars, lawyers, officials and the public interested in Vietnam and its laws and legal institutions.
  • promote collaboration, networking, student exchanges and research on Vietnamese law and justice.

Melbourne-Vietnam Legal Research Group (MVLRG)

The Melbourne-Vietnam Legal Research Group (MVLRG) was established as a forum for graduate students working on legal issues in Vietnam to meet and discuss their work.

The MVLRG meets annually. At these meetings, graduate students present papers for discussion and feedback, followed by general discussion.

Vietnamese Legal Studies Graduate Student Workshops

The Asian Law Centre at the Melbourne Law School, together with the Asia-Pacific Business Regulation Group in the Department of Business Law at Monash University, hosts Vietnamese Legal Studies Graduate Student Workshops, which take research and writing about Vietnamese legal change as their focus. These are held every two years.

The Workshops aim to bring together postgraduate students around Australia who are researching topics relating to Vietnamese legal studies and socialist legal change. They provide students with a supportive, collegial atmosphere and the opportunity to meet students with similar interests. Students benefit from feedback received from their peers and selected academic experts in the field, including Professor John Gillespie (Monash) and Professor Pip Nicholson (Melbourne).
