    This thesis analyses Afghanistan’s legal culture from 1750 to the present date. In implementing this task, historical legal developments are discussed in light of available records such as the Law Gazettes and recorded cases by the law courts as well as the analyses produced in the form of books, research papers and objective reports by national and international sources. For the technical aspects of Afghanistan’s legal history and legal traditions (legal culture), the thesis aims to provide in-depth descriptions as to how legal issues in Afghanistan have developed over a period of nearly three centuries. In this thesis, the legal affairs, their strengths, weaknesses and deficiencies will be discussed in light of the given situations. They will be discussed in relation to the internal and external aspects of Afghanistan’s legal system in order to produce an informative research which shows whether in Afghanistan a culture of legality has been established. Through the completion of this thesis, the writer aims to provide insights as well as suggestions in relation to the issues discussed and analysed. The writer is conscious that on a topic like this, despite all the efforts he has made, there is, given the state of the question, simply no way of excluding any possibility of a gap or a lacuna.
