Since enrolling its first class in 2006, comprised of 51 students, AUAF has educated thousands of graduates, many of whom are rising stars in fields ranging from law to science and business to politics.  Central to this effort, since the university’s inception, has been the Stanford University Law School Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP), both for the university — in designing and fostering its 4-year LLB and MBA degrees — and the country of Afghanistan — in spurring an entire generation of legal practitioners in Afghanistan.

Fifteen years on, reflecting on the incredible progress made and the current situation, SLS offers a candid and inspiring conversation on the program’s past, present, and future.
