The appearance of "Quoc Trieu Kham Tung Dieu Le" - a procedural code - marks a legislative achievement in the Le dynasty (1428-1788) in particular and feudal Vietnam in general. Its content clearly demonstrates the spirit of serving the people, respecting and protecting their legitimate interests. This spirit can be clearly seen in almost all provisions of the Code, with all the procedural stages from filing of lawsuits, scene inspection, adjudication, to judgment enforcement designed to ward off the casual and unfair application of law by feudal rulers and to protect the people's legitimate interests in the procedural process.
