Embark on a transformative journey with our Vietnam Law, Governance, and Culture Study Tour—an immersive exploration into the rich legal heritage and contemporary governance of Vietnam, a burgeoning force in Asia. This unique unit offers students an unparalleled opportunity to delve into the intricacies of Vietnam's legal system, unveiling its historical evolution and its current role in shaping the nation's trajectory.

This study tour serves as a gateway to broader insights into Asian legal systems and cultures, providing a comparative perspective that extends beyond Vietnam's borders. By fostering a comprehensive understanding of legal principles within an Asian context, students develop a nuanced appreciation for the diverse approaches to governance and law across the region.


You will learn about Vietnam’s rich legal and political environment and this experience provides an entrée into the broader Asian region. The aim is to provide you with an immersive introduction into Vietnam’s legal culture and its laws. You will undertake this learning experience through spending two weeks in-country visiting Vietnam’s economic capital of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and will visit other regional cities.


The program is spent in Ho Chi Minh City. During this period, you will visit and have class at the University of Economics and other sites including law firms, courts, and government departments.
