The Yearbook of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law: A Call for Papers
The editors of the Yearbook of Islamic and Middle Eastern Law call upon academics, practitioners and post-graduate students with specialist knowledge of Middle Eastern and Islamic law to submit articles on topical issues to be considered for publication in volume 12 (2005-6). All manuscripts should comply with our author guidelines.
In particular we are looking for manuscripts on:
● Iranian Law
● Comparative Arab and Islamic Law
● Algerian, Tunisian and Sudanese Law
● The relationship between Sharia Law and International Law
● Iraqi Criminal Law
● North African Tribal Law and Islamic Law
● Islamic Legal Theory
The editors are also open to other papers on related topics that meet the Yearbook’s high standards of scholarship. In addition, the Yearbook welcomes case notes and book reviews. All manuscripts must be submitted in English, although we will occasionally publish papers in French. Arabic must be used sparingly, i.e. when quoting cases. Please note that the deadline for submissions for volume 12 is the end of May 2007. We are currently looking for country surveyors for Algeria, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
All submission queries should be addressed to our Assistant Editor, Victor Kattan at email@example.com.
