DEDICATION, I would like to thank my wife Anna and my daughter Saskia for putting up with me these past. four years I could not have completed this thesis without their love and support Furthermore I. owe a great deal to my supervisors Professor Peter Muchlinski and Mr Nicholas HD Foster. who devoted countless hours to my supervision and most importantly pushed me to achieve. I also wish to thank the William Ballantyne Fund and the School of Oriental and African Studies. for generous grants without which I would not have been able to carry on. The extant literature concerning the Law of Islamic Finance LIF is dominated by illustrations of. Islamic financial contracts and critiques of the way in which the sharia has been circumvented. Much less emphasis has been placed on understanding the regulatory and financial. environment in which the LIF is formed and practiced This thesis considers the challenges in. formulating and implementing a modern transnational LIF in the conventional financial and legal. environment and offers solutions to these problems It demonstrates the way in which the. classical sharia is transformed by these challenges into a LIF a hybrid law resulting from. pluralistic legal interaction and financial competition In assessing the manner and impact of. implementing the LIF in the United Kingdom the thesis considers the interaction of the sharia. with English law UK financial services law and international regulatory standards Comparative. law methodology with a particular emphasis upon legal pluralism and legal transplants are. The sharia a relatively stateless law is the inspiration behind Islamic financial contracts. Dominated by transnational corporate interests Islamic financial ijtih d represents the strategy. to adapt conventional financial contracts to sharia criteria The results are hybrid structures that. conform to Islamic legal theory but which generate municipal legal challenges in practice as. well as sharia compliance risks Such structures have been integrated in English law with the. creation of tax exemptions and novel regulatory classifications that treat these structures as. loan arrangements and debt based instruments Furthermore Islamic financial transactions are. subject to UK financial services regulation which itself incorporates European Union financial. directives and Basel Capital Adequacy Standards Finally Islamic financial contracts which are. often governed by English law face challenges in English courts concerning parties choice of. the sharia as the proper law of their contract Arbitration on the other hand offers parties the. autonomy to choose the sharia as the substantive law of their contract and to have it enforced. under English law, The wide range of challenges in articulating and implementing a LIF demonstrate the hybrid. nature of the law resulting from pluralistic legal interaction in modern financial markets This. pivotal insight may encourage scholars and practitioners to revise their conception of the LIF. and by extension their view of the industry and its financial practices In sum the LIF is a. modern transnational law that derives its inspiration from the classical Islamic tradition of. commerce but which has been innovated in ways that distinguish it as an emergent law in its.
