This one-day course will introduce various aspects of family law in Muslim legal thought.
Family law covers areas of marriage, divorce, inheritance and custody, and has been central to Muslim societies. The course will consider basic terms associated with Islamic legal traditions and situate them within their historical contexts. It will also examine legal notions regarding spousal and parental relationships; explore issues surrounding property rights; analyse selected cases of law reform across the Muslim world; and survey case studies of Muslim family law, with particular attention to the practices of Muslim minority groups in Western countries.
The course does not require any prior knowledge of Muslim history or its legal traditions.
