Nguyen Thanh graduated from the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam in 2011 with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations, majoring in International Law. During her undergraduate studies, she had strong passion on international trade law issues since her country, Vietnam, has become an official member of WTO. As a student, she represented the Vietnam Law Students in the 9th ELSA Moot Court Competition on WTO law which marked her strong interest in a career in international trade law.
After graduation, she worked as a trainee lawyer and then as an associate for Vietnam International Law Firm, a leading law firm in Vietnam, and advised clients on a number of issues derived from the fields of litigation, corporate, and foreign direct investment. Her strong desires to become a trade law expert has urges Thanh for joining the IELPO LL.M. programme.
During the IELPO programme, Thanh hopes to learn more about WTO substantial and procedural issues as well as to national policies so that she can advise the state and other clients on this field in future.
Apart from her professional interests, she loves cooking and music.
