Young people in Afghanistan attend law school with the vision of using their degree to promote rule of law and stability in their country. Yet the decision is not without risk. On Wednesday August 24th, terrorists attacked the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF), previously immune to the violence that has destabilized much of the country. Among the students and staff killed was law professor and former visiting Stanford Law School fellow Naqib Ahmad Khpulwak.
Hear from former AUAF faculty and students about education’s role in securing Afghanistan’s future, why terrorist groups attack academic institutions, and AUAF’s path forward from tragedy.
Sponsored by the Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP) and the International Law Society (ILS). The Afghanistan Legal Education Project has maintained a close partnership with AUAF over the past decade to develop the university’s law program and promote legal scholarship on Afghan law.
Lunch will be served. RSVP here.
