In July 2014 the International Center for Law and Religion Studies was pleased to co-sponsor the third annual Certificate Training Program on Religion and the Rule of Law in Vietnam. This year’s program was held in the city of Da Nang, Vietnam. Da Nang is the center of commerce and education in central Vietnam. The program featured the top Vietnamese academics dealing with law and religion in their country along with many of the world’s leading academics on the topic. Judge Clifford Wallace of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Thomas Griffith D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals also taught at the event. The Institute for Global Engagement, University of Social Sciences and Humanities Hanoi, and Da Nang Foreign Language University cosponsored the event. This year’s program also saw the release of a Vietnamese language edition of the casebook Law and Religion: National, International, and Comparative Perspectives by Professor Cole W. Durham and Professor Brett G. Scharffs.
