Islamic Law in a Globalized World: Implications for Contemporary Finance Law

9:00 am -5:00 pm
Godfrey and Kahn Hall (Room 2260)
University of Wisconsin Law School

Overview:

Islamic law has become an intense area of interest and debate in recent years. Not only does Islamic law present questions of pluralism and governance in one's private life, but it also has profound implications for the ways in which both domestic and international business transactions are conducted. The goal of this symposium is to call attention to the role Islamic law, particularly Islamic finance law, has come to play in the United States. This event will focus both on Islamic law generally as well as on various details of Islamic finance law.

Registration deadline Feb. 20, 2007. Registration is free and walk-ins are welcome, but registration is strongly recommended to facilitate planning.
