Legal Theory deals with the way in which Islamic law is derived. Though beginning with a simple, classic primer on the subject, students eventually delve deeply into the nuances and subtleties of Divine Law (Shariah) through source material and specific case studies. These courses enhance student appreciation of material covered in Jurisprudence classes as well other cross-cultural manifestations of Islamic Law and Muslim practices.
