Hanoi Law University (HLU), Vietnam’s premier law school, and the University of Arizona (UA), which ranks in the top one-percent of universities worldwide, have partnered for a dual degree that allows students to earn a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from HLU and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Law from the UA in only four years and entirely in Vietnam.
Through this innovative partnership, high-performing undergraduates complete two degrees at once, including the top LLB credential in Vietnam, while also gaining the prestige of earning a BA in Law from a fully-accredited and highly-ranked U.S. university.
HLU and UA professors deliver courses in person at the Hanoi campus using advanced technology. Students receive instruction in civil and criminal procedure, contracts, and torts and may also take courses in evidence, legal research, and lawyering skills—preparing them to practice international law in Vietnam or continue their legal studies abroad.
Dual degree students access UA resources and become part of the UA’s network of 295,000 alumni around the world, including judges, CEOs, and government officials.
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. Known for innovation, the UA’s James E. Rogers College of Law is a top 40 law school in the U.S. and was the first in the U.S. to offer a bachelor’s degree in Law.
The UA currently operates similar dual degree programs at the American University of Phnom Penh in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and at Ocean University of China in Qingdao, China. Students of the program in Qingdao, the first cohort of its kind, graduated in June 2019 with impressive outcomes, including early admission to top graduate law programs in the U.S., China, Australia, and the U.K.
Students develop English proficiency throughout the dual degree program and may seamlessly transfer to the UA Tucson campus in Arizona, U.S., for a summer, semester, or longer. The palm tree-lined campus is known as one of the most beautiful in the country, and the surrounding city of Tucson features shopping, hiking, and a designation as the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy in the U.S.
