On August 27, Binh Q. Nguyen presented his paper, "Harmonization of Law for Economic Development in Vietnam & Impacts for the Vietnam-United States Bilateral Trade Agreement Toward this Process", to the law school's faculty. The 3-part publication was recently featured the University of Louisville School of Law Legal Studies Research Paper Series at SSRN.
The project is focused on the major efforts & experiences of Vietnam in harmonizing national laws and regulations for the attainment of its development goals during the 1991-2001 period, the impacts of the UN-Vietnam BRA toward the legislative reform process for 2001-2007, and their indications toward future US-Vietnam trade relations.
Ambassador Binh is a visiting Fulbright Scholar from Vietnam and is also the Director of NBC Law Firm in Vietnam. Some of his accomplishments include Recognition of Excellence by Harvard Law School/ITP; Director General of the Legal Department of MOFA; Ambassador & Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the UN, CD & WTO in Geneva; Chief Negotiator on Post-war Issues with the US, and in Land-Sea Boundary Delimitations with Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, China, and Cambodia; and Part-time lecturer in some universities abroad (Australia, UK and the US).

Congratulations! You are beginning your third week of classes. For those of you who are new to law school, things should be getting into a routine now. For those of you who are returning to law school, you probably feel like you never left because it is all so familiar.
You now have a long weekend that you can look forward to. Use this time wisely to improve your future workload as a law student. Three days can be a blessing for law students who have gotten behind in their reading or who are feeling sleep-deprived. This week's tips will provide suggestions for getting the most out of this weekend.
Tip 1: If you are still getting settled in to your apartment, try to finish all of those tasks by the end of the weekend. Finish unpacking boxes. Finish organizing your study area. Finish the final decorating touches. Starting Tuesday morning, you want to make law school your priority. Even if you are settled in your home, take advantage of the long weekend to get your errands run and to get your space in order.
