I. BACKGROUND: Wildlife trafficking is a serious transnational crime that threatens security, economic prosperity, the rule of law, long-standing conservation efforts, and human health. In recent years, WCS has gradually approached law training institutions to raise awareness of wildlife trafficking issues as well as provide future bachelor/master in law with knowledge and skills on wildlife crime prevention and combat.

Since March 2019, WCS has been working with the Hanoi Prosecution University (HPU) to develop a training module that provides students with background and in-depth knowledge on handling wildlife crimes in Vietnam. In June 2020, HPU also issued a decision to officially approve the integration of the module as a two-credit elective subject into the HPU's training system. The textbook on the role of the people's procuracy in handling wildlife cases has been developed and finalized for the course to be open for students’ selection in the 2020-2021 school year.

At the same time, since 2019, WCS has also collaborated with the Institute of Public Policy and Laws to support the School of Law, Vietnam National University, Ha Noi (VNU) to develop a reference book on “Anti-corruption in wildlife trafficking” which will be used in the Master program in State Governance and Anti-Corruption.

In order to develop similar courses/subjects in law training institutes across the country, WCS and the VNU’s research team will conduct research in order to identify the trend of integrating subject “wildlife protection” in bachelor/master program in the law training schools around the world and in Vietnam.
