About Judge Nadera Akbari

Judge Nadera Akbari is a highly respected and former member of Afghanistan’s highest court. 

Judge Akbari has worked for 17 years in the Afghan courts, starting in traffic court and working her way up to the highest court in Kabul, Afghanistan. She worked to pass the Violence Against Women law through parliament and heard the first case in violation of that law against a member of the Taliban. Judge Akbari has been threatened, kidnapped, and assaulted, and her family has been shot all because of her commitment to bringing justice to the people of Afghanistan. 

After the fall of Kabul, Judge Akbari and her family, her husband, and six children relocated to Northglenn, CO. Judge Akbari has multiple years of experience working and living in Afghanistan under both the rule of the Taliban and democratic rule. She is a woman of great intelligence, great perseverance, and a perpetual commitment to seeking justice in this world.
