Vietnam’s draft revision to Law on Organization of the People’s Courts for discussion in November

The Supreme People’s Court of Vietnam has recently released a draft revision to the Law on Organization of the People’s Courts of 2014, which will undergo discussion at the National Assembly this November.

The draft law seeks to replace the organizational structure of Vietnamese courts, emphasizing the level of adjudication rather than their current connection with administrative units.
