The Program in Islamic Law at Harvard Law School is dedicated to promoting research and providing resources for the academic study of Islamic law.
We host a suite of projects toward that end: a Portal for organizing the world’s information on Islamic law (SHARIAsource), a set of Publications for cutting-edge scholarship in Islamic legal studies (a book series, occasional papers, and a peer-reviewed journal), and myriad Program events and support for students, fellows, and scholars working in the field of Islamic legal studies.
Professor Intisar Rabb leads the Program as its faculty director. Our community comprises of a dynamic group of staff, fellows, students, affiliates, editors, and advisors. We work with the Harvard Library, Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and Berkman Klein Center, and a global team of scholars and institutional partners to advance Islamic law scholarship, including the use of data science methods and AI tools to facilitate new research and analysis in this field.
