Abstract

This article examines Vietnam’s regulations and practices concerning the right to defence of juvenile offenders in comparison with international standards. I use mixed methods including statistics and analysis of case studies. Research findings indicate that Vietnam’s laws firmly state the right to defence of juvenile offenders but lack specific guarantees for appropriate legal support and protection of privacy. In the implementation of the law, we can see various issues, including a lack of understanding of their rights by offenders and their representatives, and failure to provide appropriate defence for juvenile offenders among responsible agencies.
