about

Practicing Law in Shariah Courts: Seven Strategies for Achieving Justice in Shariah Courts describes the Shariah courts of Northern Nigeria, and offers advice for counsel practicing in Shariah courts worldwide, particularly in cases involving women. The book contains the author's reflection of her experiences while defending clients in Shariah courts. It is a book written by a legal practitioner, sharing the strategies and resources that have served her well throughout her career. The multi-layered composition of this book, weaving together Islamic law, national laws, international treatises, and religious texts is intent on providing lawyers all possible avenues for drafting a defense strategy that reflects the integrity of Shariah and upholds the values of the community.
Hauwa Ibrahim is entering her fifth year at Harvard University. She has been honored with awards such as the European Parliament 2005 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought-the first sub-Saharan African woman to be awarded this prize-as well as the Cavaliere Award, the highest Human Rights Award from the Italian Government.
