We enjoy a prime location, in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City, less than a kilometre from the social, financial and business centres of Vietnam lending the university a dynamic and "real world" feel. Every year we welcome more than 2000 students from both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Graduating from a law university is a standard route to enter the legal profession in Vietnam, as well as many other branches such as police, administration and commercial. Currently, the Law University host more than 5000 students. Each faculty in our university hosts more than 800 full time students, and an equivalent number of part-time students. From 2000, we also offer LL.M. program and from 2004 we offer PhD in law program.

Our students come mainly from the Southern provinces of Vietnam, from Hue to Ca Mau; and we also open many training courses for officials and civil servants in these provinces. This benefits the university in many ways, not least because we have trained many officials working with national and international government institutions and ministries. We also provide a forum for debate between academic and practioners, namely lawyers, in-house counsels, judges, officials at the people?s committees, who come back to School either to study master degrees or to discuss with tackling a contemporary issue.
Our Students' Youth Union is particularly well known and active and co-ordinating many social activities for the students. Student Societies and the Athletic Union offer opportunities for undergraduates and graduates alike to become involved in an activity they enjoy and provide a welcome distraction from studying.

At present, a high proportion of our graduates enjoy considerable success in their chosen fields including teaching, further study and research, government, law and public service. Among the university?s alumni, many have become high-ranking officials, judges, successful researchers and lawyers.

Ho Chi Minh City Law University has developed a number of cooperation programs with international universities in three areas: joint training programs, joint scientific seminars, visiting professors and lectureship, exchange staff, teaching professional English. We have cooperated with the Lund University to organise a Vietnam ? Sweden LL.M. program (2002-2004), as well as provide English training for teaching staffs.

Thanks to cooperation programs, about 40 of our staffs have received scholarships for LL.M. studies at various universities in Sweden, France, UK, the US, Australia, Russia, Japan, Singapore and Korea. Many more teachers and staffs have been sent abroad to visit European universities In addition, we have organised a number of seminars in cooperation with Lund University, National University of Singapore, University of San Francisco, University of Nagoya, Universities Libre Bruxelles and Universit?yon 3. There are two project seminar rooms at our school, one is sponsored by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and one is sponsored by the Alliance de le Universities rancaise (AUF).
