  • Publication Date: 08-12-2011


This paper is an attempt to raise and highlight questions and issues inherent in the conceptualisation, development and delivery of a range of Islamic law curricula including family law, criminal law and justice, social welfare and zakat law, Islamic international law, human rights in Islam and international law, Islamic environmental law and Islamic Finance and banking law.

It draws upon Islamic law teaching and research experiences in both ‘Muslim’ and non-Muslim jurisdictions as well as views and opinions of Islamic law teachers in a number of jurisdictions including Pakistan, Malaysia, South Africa, the UK, Continental Europe and the USA.. This paper is part of a series of teaching and learning materials on Islamic law developed through the generous support of the UKCLE, CLEA and the University of Warwick, United Kingdom.
