Law and the connection with human’s destiny

Seizing the opportunity, he decided to study Law at Kuban National University, in Russia. He thinks that every profession is noble as long as it contributes to the society, however, training time of the medical profession and the law profession are longer and more carefully than other jobs because they closely connect with human's destiny. A good doctor can help people get rid of dangerous diseases. A good lawyer can change the lives of thousands of people.

According to Ph.D. Lawyer. Luu Tien Dung, the law has never been an "easy" job. There are many concerns and challenges, but the last thing which keeps lawyers from sticking to their profession for years are the positive values and bring happiness to everyone: “We do not have a car, we buy a car or we do not have a house, we buy a house. It is fun for fulfilling an individual's wishes. But a good lawyer can use his wisdom, experience and knowledge to help hundreds of clients solve life's difficult problems, troubleshoot their troubles, and find happiness. So that lawyer has already achieved hundreds, thousands of happiness."

A good barrister is not an always winning lawyer, but a talented strategist

In 2019, the dispute between Grab and Vinasun consumed the ink of law agencies, speech agencies and society, becoming the case with the most of trials in Asian history when this is economic civil judgment that has up to 12 trials, each session takes place over several days.

In the law, honesty is very important. You must protect the interests of customers in the best way, but you cannot put the customers' interests above justice."

Asia's leading Lawyer and the predestined relationship with VLU

As a member of the Advisory Council, participate in contributing to build and review the training program of Economic Law, he pointed out the difference in the approach to legal education in VLU, which is the way of seeing and building programs from social needs, linking theoretical with practical. According to the lawyer, bringing practical cases into the curriculum is quite similar to the program he was studying in the US. This is a step to help students eliminate worry when entering the profession, reducing the time to retrain "newbies" for many companies.

He thinks that Van Lang University's young generation is full of energy. Besides the support and mentoring of teachers, each Law student needs to equip with enthusiasm, prudence, meticulousness and good critical thinking in order not to be negligent in the profession.

When you become a judge, all you need to do is make a right and wrong decision. But to be a good lawyer, consultant, or mediator, you need to consider many more aspects of the possibilities. Law learners must know how to criticize in their own opinions, recognize the dialectical, multidimensional facts to build the most effective strategy.
