22 Feb talk on ‘Islamic Finance and the English Court’


Thursday 22nd February 2018, 6pm

 Islamic Finance and the English Court


TT International, 62 Threadneedle Street, London

 Speaker: Scott Morrison

 Financial services purporting compliance with shari‘a (Islamic law) comprise a rapidly growing and increasingly valuable sector in UK and global markets. Because English law and courts are frequently preferred by investors, issuers, and borrowers in these transactions (irrespective of place of contractual performance), this sector has special significance for English lawyers as it has also for the City of London at large. This presentation analyses the evolution of the case law and the market in shari‘a compliant financial services in and from the United Kingdom.

 Followed by drinks and networking

 Attendance at the seminar is free for BACFI members, £20 payable in advance for non-members. Cheques payable to BACFI to be sent to PO Box 4352, Edlesborough, Dunstable, Beds LU6 9EF. To register or if you have any queries please email events@bacfi.org or call 01525 222 244

Forthcoming book review of Law of Sukuk

Elizabeth Robson Taylor and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers, each of Richmond Green Chambers in London write in a review of The Law of Sukuk (forthcoming in Barrister Magazine):

‘the book comes at the right time with London maintaining its position as a centre of global importance and reach concerning Islamic finance’

‘we are given reliable information and analysis for the practitioner […] this book will be of interest in other fields including consultancy, accounting, investment banking, the government, the treasury and all involved in tax matters.’

‘We found it quite sufficient for any experienced professional who receives instructions where there may be a commitment to, or some understanding of, the relevant principles of Islamic law and for those who may be investing in, or arranging a sakk issue.’
