This course will offer an opportunity to survey and examine the growing intersection between Shari`ah-related transactions (including, but not limited to, banking and finance)and the American rule of law and regulation (financial or otherwise). Issues to be discussed in detail include riba-interest equivalence, form and substance in contemporary Islamic banking, adjudication of Shari`ah-related transactions in contemporary Anglo-American tribunals and whether or not Shari`ah-related transactions constitute corporate social responsibility. Discussions of Shari`ah will focus almost exclusively on Sunni perspectives, as they dominate the contemporary practice of Islamic banking and finance. No prior knowledge of Islam, Shari`ah, or finance is assumed.
