American Law Schools Open doors to Afghan Students


Afghan law students are getting a leg up on their legal education with the help of American law schools.  Under a specially designed Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan, nearly a dozen schools have opened their door to a select few select students.  The program, started in 2007, by the Department of State was created to ensure that Afghans would have the means, as well as the skills to develop, sustain and support the rule of law within their own country facing the establishment of a new democracy. 

Students are afforded top-notch, tuition free educations, and opportunities to meet with American leaders like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton under the program.  Hands-on workshops are also available just with Afghan legal students in mind, including a 21 day program for Afghan prosecutors at the University of Utah.    

To date, Harvard University, Washington and Lee University in Virginia, George Washington University, American University, Stanford, Whittier College, the University of California at Berkley, the University of Utah and Ohio Northern University have all opened their door to the Public-Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan at a tuition free rate.
