The Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Law

Jonathan AC Brown, Editor-in-chief

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Law is an ongoing project designed to provide clear, comprehensive information on the major topics of scholarly interest within the study of Islam and law. Featuring both new content as well as updated articles from The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World, the Encyclopedia combines comprehensive information about the Islamic legal tradition along with the role of Islamic law in modern Muslim states, and establishes useful links between Islamic and Western legal traditions.
