Chapman University School of Law is honored to be amongst select law schools, including Harvard and Stanford University, which were invited to participate in the Public Private Partnership for Justice Reform in connection with the American University of Afghanistan.

Dean Campbell and Chapman University’s Chancellor Daniele C. Struppa have created a program to provide full-tuition scholarships to highly accomplished Afghan students to participate in Chapman’s International and Comparative Law L.L.M. program, in order to learn the United States rule of law principals.

“In Afghanistan, the rule of law is not completely established, so it is not easy to adjudicate; that is why the law program is so important for Afghanistan’s future,” said Dr. C. Michael Smith, President of the American University of Afghanistan, at a luncheon held at Chapman in his honor.

Chapman was selected because of its capacity to address rule of law issues and its historic support for international legal education.  Chapman Law will be welcoming two female Afghan attorneys to its L.L.M. program this Fall.

“Education is a long term solution for a short term problem in Afghanistan,” said Dr. Smith.  “What Chapman’s doing is just phenomenal.”  Read all about it in OC Metro.
