Lap is a business law lecturer and Senior Executive Partner at NH Quang & Associates, a commercial law firm in Hanoi with a strong dedication to the public interest. In this role he has worked on many activities and projects to promote human rights and the rule of law in Vietnam, including but not limited to, drafting policies and regulations on environmental protection. Lap’s proposed rule of law project is the establishment of a Center for the Promotion and Protection of Environmental Rights. The Center will work on the grassroots level, combining local NGOs’ efforts to advocate for the improvement of existing laws governing environmental protection with pro bono legal services to disadvantaged people who are negatively impacted by industrialization.
