Quynh Lan Pham


“The year 2020 is an unusual year but is definitely unforgettable for mankind. On January 2, 2020, I came back to my home country, Vietnam, after 4 months doing my research at the  Harvard Law School. I was lucky enough to come back safely right before the pandemic hit us.

Thanks to the Fulbright U.S.-ASEAN program I gained so much during my research. I could remember the happiness I felt when reading books in the yard of Langdell Hall on a beautiful fall day; the people I met and talked with along my journey. All the lunch talks hosted by the faculties, the students with speakers from all over the world broaden my perspective. I have seen a lively America through its nature, art, history, music, culture and people. It amazed me how the world was changing fast but we all shall never forget to maintain our ethics, rights and good faith.”

Ms. Pham Quynh Lan is a 2019 U.S.-ASEAN Fulbright scholar from Vietnam. She studied “The Future of Legal Education in the U.S. and Vietnam: A Look Through Clinical Legal Education Model” in Harvard Law School The East Asian Legal Studies program.
