Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP)

پروژه ی آموزش حقوقی افغانستان   |   دافغانستان دحقوقی زده کړو پروژه

The Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP) was founded in 2007 as a student-driven initiative under Stanford Law School’s Rule of Law Program. Since then, ALEP has published six textbooks about Afghan law for Afghan audiences, and has an additional three forthcoming. In 2012 ALEP received a $7.24 million grant from the U.S. Department of State, which helped ALEP expand its textbook-writing capabilities and establish the BA-LLB (Bachelor of Arts and Law) degree program at the American University of Afghanistan.

On Thursday November 3, 2016, Stanford Law School’s Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP) hosted a special lunch panel entitled “War on Education: Spotlight on the Recent Terrorist Attack at the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF).” The panel was moderated by ALEP Executive Director Mehdi Hakimi, with panelists consisting of ALEP’s founding professor Erik Jenson, AUAF alumni Sayed Madadi and Onaba Payab, and a current student of AUAF’s law department, Samira Abrar.
