WFU School of Law to Host Afghan Scholar

Wake Forest University School of Law has been certified as a host institution for a new important foundation, the Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan (PPP), established by the U.S. Department of State and leading private attorneys in the U.S. 

The PPP is a prestigious academic foundation supported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and offers scholarships, training, and other educational resources to Afghan prosecutors, judges, defense lawyers, advocates, and educators.

Other schools participating in this program include Harvard University, Stanford, Boston University, Georgetown, George Washington University, and Washington and Lee.

Wake Forest School of Law plans to host an Afghan scholar beginning in the 2011-2012 academic year.  Dean Blake Morant describes WFU’s participation in this foundation as a “coup” for the School of Law, while Alan Palmiter, Professor of Law and Co-Chair of the International Graduate Programs, comments it is “a great feather in our law school’s international cap.”
