A conversation with: Kimberly Motley
Motley Legal

Introduced and Moderated by:

Ambassador James B. Cunningham
Senior Fellow and Khalilzad Chair, South Asia Center
Atlantic Council

The Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center invites you to a conversation with Kimberley Motley about her experiences as an international litigator in Afghanistan, the United States, and around the world, as well as her advocacy for rule of law and human rights worldwide. She was able to talk about some of her work through her Ted Talk entitled: How I Defend the Rule of Law.

Kimberley Motley is the first and only western litigator navigating the struggling and capricious legal system in Afghanistan. She has successfully litigated all of her cases in Afghanistan for over seven years. With her global practice she represents clients on almost every continent and focuses on cases of foreign defendants, and International commercial entities, as well as pro-bono human rights cases, which constitute at least 30% of her work. In the United States and beyond, she has become a vocal and un-deterred advocate for under-represented and marginalized populations in Afghanistan as well as other countries. She is the founder of the JUSTNESS PROJECT that seeks to raise the bar for legal representation globally. Her career as an international litigator in Afghanistan is profiled in the new documentary film Motley’s Law.
