Welcome to the African Legal Library Project.  We're glad you're here.

We are a student group at Northwestern University School of Law that supports legal education in Africa.  We delivered 1500 legal textbooks to Bahir Dar University in July 2011, and another 2000 to Dire Dawa in September 2012.  We count on the support of people like you to keep the ball rolling.  By the end of 2013, we plan to deliver another shipment to another Ethiopian university.  

We hope you will support us in whatever way you can.

Founding Quote

"The time has come for American legal educators and members of the American bar who are concerned about African legal education to shift from describing what they view as desirable changes to active participation with our African colleagues to design a process and to secure resources to support what African legal educators need."
