The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review, Sixth Edition, provides in-depth information about the manner in which Islamic, or Shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world. Islamic finance has grown rapidly during the past 25 years in terms of market participants, structuring expertise and transaction types. While each country has variations, Islamic finance as a legal discipline includes core concepts and structures that cross jurisdictional boundaries.
