This thesis examines clinical legal education (CLE) as one of the promising approaches for the reform of the Vietnamese legal education system. The thesis investigates the primary question of what the future of Vietnamese legal education should be: traditional, clinical or a combination of both? In the context of the current, and arguably ineffective, Vietnamese legal education system, and in the light of the global clinical movement, it is hypothesised that there is an urgent need for reform and that CLE offers an appropriate approach to this reform. The research question and hypothesis were examined by reviewing the literature and conducting empirical research in Vietnam.
