Ngoc Son Bui
I come from Vietnam. I am a graduate of Vietnam National University-Hanoi (LLB; LLM) and The University of Hong Kong (PhD). I live in Oxford with my wife and two children.
An academic career fits my natural inclination. When I studied at a high school, I read a lot about philosophy and history.
My research interests are comparative & constitutional law in Asia, particularly in the socialist and Confucian culture-influenced jurisdictions. This is due in part to my background: Vietnam is a socialist country and has a Confucian tradition. Currently, I am writing a book on legal reform in five socialist countries: China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.
My hobby is music. I like listening and singing Vietnamese songs, especially the songs that mix some jazz with Vietnamese traditional music. When I was a lecturer at Vietnam National University-Hanoi, I won a gold medal inthe National Teacher Singing Festival.
