An LLM program, or Master of Laws, is often taken by students who already have at least one law degree. This program allows the student to concentrate on a particular area of legal exploration, such as common or criminal law, and is usually a one-year program for a full-time student.

What is an LLM in Islamic Law? This program mostly focuses on the legal issues associated with Islamic countries and cities. A dissertation on a topic related to the degree specialization may be required, and the passage of examinations in particular courses may also be mandatory. Areas covered in the program could include Islamic law, human rights and Islamic law, law and society of the Middle East, and the history of Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.

Scholars from this program often gain a familiarity with Islamic customs, allowing them to travel confidently to the Middle East region. They may also better understand Islamic law and the courtroom proceedings of this region, making them valuable as legal consultants for many companies.

The total costs of this program will vary from university to university, and financial aid packages and scholarships may be available. The student should contact each school for the final price and for other financial details.

Graduates with an LLM in Islamic Law are often in demand for work at legal firms, international companies, banks and real estate businesses. Positions could include legal counsel, attorney, legal administrator, research librarian and legal editor for law publications. Large companies that have business dealings with Islamic countries could hire graduates for legal, financial and real estate positions.

The SOAS LLM in Islamic Law offers a world-leading specialisation in a rapidly developing area of law that has increasing significance in Muslim majority countries as well as in the lives of many Muslims living elsewhere. The LLM deals in depth with issues such as those relating to families, financial markets, philanthropy, inter-state and international relations and globalisation. It offers a platform for viewing and understanding different parts of the Muslim world from multifaceted and diverse perspectives. Modules included in the programme investigate the meanings and applications of principles of Islamic law in South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and transnationally. They explore jurisprudence and methodologies, family law, criminal law and financial law, and consider critical areas of intersection with international human rights law. Law and society more generally is a focus for the region-specific modules, interrogating the place and role of law in and its relationship with society, including but not limited to issues of gender, colonialism, constitutional law and plural legal systems. -
