Mr. Yoeurng Sotheara


Mr. Yoeurng Sotheara received his Bachelor degree in Law (LL.B) (Honor) from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2011.
After graduating from UC, he obtained a Master degree in law, major in Master of Comparative Law (MCL) from the University of Delhi,
Republic of India in 2014.

Currently he is a Legal and Monitoring Officer at Committee for Free and Fair Election in Cambodia (COMFREL) and also a Part-time Lecturer of Law subjects at various universities in Cambodia including UC.

Mr. Sotheara stated that:

“UC changed my life. I might be a different person from who I am today if it wasn’t for the opportunities provided by UC. I was a recipient of the Prime Minister’s scholarship program at UC which required me to work very hard under strict rules to secure the scholarship award and also to ensure the education quality for scholarship students.

I have had fun memories of the College of Law with other law students and lecturer Tep Punloeu. I remember participating in the Mock-Trial program funded by USAID and providing mock counselling. I miss the time when I was interviewed by SEATV, on a program called “My Life”.

Prof. In Sophal was an outstanding lecturer in International Relations. Classes were strict but they were fun and even motivated me.

I wish to share with current law students that: “You must try to do your best in whatever circumstances you face, which enables you to improve your life and your nation. There is always hope but you need to be confident and trust in yourself to make it happen.”
