We are honoured to present the fifth edition of The Islamic Finance and Markets Law Review. The chapters that follow describe the manner in which Islamic, or shariah-compliant, finance is practised in various jurisdictions throughout the world. Although each country will have variations, one of the most striking features of Islamic finance as a legal discipline is that it includes core concepts and structures that cross jurisdictional boundaries. The chapters in this book illustrate the dynamic manner in which Islamic finance has adapted and continues to develop globally.
