2015 Recipient

Work for a TOP 10 INTERNATIONAL LAW FIRM and live abroad this summer!

Thank you for your interest in the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Washington (“VABAW”) Hồng Đức Clerkship VABAW recognizes that an international perspective will greatly enrich and broaden a law student’s legal education and experience. To that end, VABAW created the Hồng Đức Clerkship in 2007. The 2015 Hồng Đức Clerkship will provide a law student with the opportunity to clerk at HOGAN LOVELLS in Vietnam for a maximum of three summer months. This is a unique opportunity to live in Vietnam and learn about international and comparative law by working at an international law firm. The Clerkship will award up to a total of $5,000, with approximately $2,000 applied to a round-trip airfare ticket to Vietnam and a maximum of $1,000 for each month of the Clerkship paid directly to the Clerkship Recipient for living expenses.

HOGAN LOVELLS became a top 10 global legal services provider on May 1, 2010 through an unprecedented merger of two firms with international credentials, U.S.-based firm Hogan & Hartson and UK-based firm Lovells. Modern-day Hogan Lovells carries on the tradition of excellence established by its founders and further builds on their legacy. After opening a representative office in 1994, Hogan Lovells became the first international law firm to open a full branch office in Ho Chi Minh City in 1996. Today, Hogan Lovells works closely with its newly-opened office in Hanoi, offering a full range of corporate, intellectual property, projects and real estate, and construction capabilities to client companies operating in Vietnam.

This is a unique opportunity that is open to ALL qualified JD or LLM law students at an ABA-accredited law school.
