-                      VNU School of Law’s Development Strategy to 2020, a vision to 2030;

-                      Higher Education Law; Action plan of the educational sector in implementing the Education Development Strategy 2011-2020; Program of basic, comprehensive innovation of education and training, improvement of human resouces for national industrialization, modernization, and international integration…

-                      Based on the country’s needs of socio-economic development, international context, capability of meeting demands for human resources, competence of implementation of the planned development targets of VNU School of Law.


After fourty years of establishment and development, VNU School of Law has been one of three leading centers for law education and training in Vietnam.

The factor that has played a dicisive role in creating achivements and position of VNU School of Law in the past years is its strongly and potentially growing human resource. At current, the School has 110 academic and support staff. Specifically:

- Total academic staff: 61 persons. Ratio of academic staff on total staff: 61/110 x 100% = 61%.

            - Ratio of professors and associate professors on total academic staff (included lecture assistants and academic staff): 14/61 x 100% = 23%.

            - Ratio of doctors, professors, and associate professors on total academic staff (included lecture assistants and academic staff): 41/61 x 100% = 67%. 

In the past years, under the leadership of its Party Committee, the School of Law has targeted the development of its human resource in order to meet the need of growth. Every year, the School organizes recruitment to attract high-quality human resource to itself.

However, VNU School of Law has faced with many constraints in developing its human resource. Specifically:

1) Planning on, development of human resource of the School is highly passive, short-termed. The School has yet had a human resource development strategy with a long vision which is able to meet the need of development phases of the School.

2) The human resource structure of the School is inappropriate if it is compared in relation with the size of the School as a whole and between divisions of the School. Some sections, research centers lack of highly-qualified staff and may face with human resource inadequacies in the coming time.

3) The quantity and quality of the human resource has yet met the task of developing the School in international integration process and especially upgrading the School into a VNU member university as being indicated in the following aspects:

- Management staff haven’t been trained on modern university management, therefore their practices are not highly professional; management and support for training, research, and development collaboration activities are poorly effective, planning practices fail to meet requirements yet, quality culture has yet developed distinctively. Some support staff are not professional, unable to work independently, leading to ineffective performance; 

- Academic staff are inadequate in quantity. Leading experts in professional fields are insufficient. Academic staff whose papers are published in international journals and who are known at regional and international levels and/or invited to give letures, do research abroad are few. The number of academic staff whose foreign language skills are good enough to give lectures fails to meet demands for developing and expanding strategic, international, advanced, and high quality academic programs. Some academic staff still lack of modern teaching and researching methods.

4) The School has yet had a breakthrough, synchronic, and long term mechanism, policy of recruitment, promotion, attraction, and use of the talented.

5)  Human resource training and retraining activities have not had comprehensive, professional implementation plans, and have not been invested properly yet.

6) Attraction and utility of cum lecturers, visiting lecturers, especially Vietnamese overseas and foreign lecturers are highly limited and haven’t been emphasized properly.

Therefore, in order to obtain the goal of upgrading the School of Law into a VNU member university and in 2020 becoming a research-oriented university of regional level and in 2030 of international level, the School needs a human resource development strategy in the 2015-2020 period and a vision to 2030 as follows:
