Apply to Study at Harvard Law School

The Islamic Legal Studies Program is a program devoted to research into and study of Islamic law at Harvard Law School. ILSP is not a degree-granting institution and it does not admit students.

To be a student at Harvard University, one must apply to the school from where one wants to earn a degree. For law, that would be Harvard Law School. The Harvard Law School Graduate Program is the division of Harvard Law School responsible for the Master of Laws (LL.M.) and the Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) degrees.

Syllabi Project

This database is the culmination of an initiative begun by Intisar Rabb in 2012, called the Islamic Law Teaching Project, through which we have developed an online resource for teaching Islamic law. Our hope is that the materials presented here will be useful for educators and enrich the teaching of Islamic law. The relevance of each contributed syllabi to Islamic law is construed broadly. Examples include: “Islamic Law and Society,” “Introduction to Islamic Law,” “Islamic Legal Institutions,” “Islamic Legal History,” and so on. The syllabi herein will be used and shared by scholars teaching Islamic law either in law schools or various social science departments, primarily in North America. If you would like to contribute, please contact [email protected] with your name, affiliation, and the title of your course. Upon approval, you will be sent a password with which to access this protected Syllabi Project section of the ILSP website.
