Overview

The Islamic Law programme from SOAS University of London deals in depth with issues such as those relating to families, financial markets, philanthropy, inter-state and international relations and globalisation.

It offers a platform for viewing and understanding different parts of the Muslim world from multifaceted and diverse perspectives.

Modules included in the programme investigate the meanings and applications of principles of Islamic law in South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and transnationally.

They explore jurisprudence and methodologies, family law, criminal law and financial law, and consider critical areas of intersection with international human rights law. Law and society more generally is a focus for the region-specific modules, interrogating the place and role of law in and its relationship with society, including but not limited to issues of gender, colonialism, constitutional law and plural legal systems.
