The student has the right to study Islamic law for whatever reason. Just curious is good enough. The instructor still retains the liberty to present the material in the manner they choose and decide their teaching goals. What forms does the teaching of Islamic law take in different teaching environments? Teaching graduate or undergraduate students? Teaching law school or humanities students? And does the subject differ considerably based on whether the focus is Sunni or Shi‘i law? Medieval or modern law? Join the discussion by Professors Sherman Jackson of the University of Southern California, Clark Lombardi of the University of Washington Law School, and Haider Hamoudi of Pittsburgh Law School, hosted by UCSB’s Kathleen Moore and Ahmad Atif Ahmad.
