That Telegraph article mentioned a “Sharia Law event at the Law Society’s headquarters on Chancery Lane, central London on June 24″ and provided a link but the link is a dud. However I found a link that works, and thus the event.
Developing services for Muslim clients – An introduction to Islamic Shari’a law for small firms
It’s not law. It’s not law. It’s not law. Stop calling it law. It’s not law.
Does your sole practice or small firm have a Muslim client base and practice in the following areas of law?
• Wills and inheritance.
• Family and children.
• Corporate and commercial (non-listed firms).
Do you want to better understand and serve the needs of your Muslim clients and build your business?
Designed as a forerunner to a planned future seminar series on Islamic law, this event will set you thinking on an important area of client service as our expert and authoritative speakers highlight some basic concepts and requirements of the Islamic Shari’a applicable to these practice areas.
That’s actually alarming. If they’re serious, and they really think “basic concepts and requirements of the Islamic Shari’a” are applicable to laws relating to for instance family and children – then they’re a fucking menace.
The event is fully booked.
