Policy-makers and the general public are increasingly attentive to the role of shari’a in the everyday lives of Western Muslims. The most common way North American Muslims relate to shari’a is in their observance of Muslim marriage and divorce rituals. 

In this webinar, Dr. Julie Macfarlane, professor of law at University of Windsor, will draw on research for her new book, Islamic Divorce in North America, to provide lawyers and paralegals practicing in family law or who have Muslim clients with a primer on Islamic marriage and divorce and help you understand navigating the interface between cultural and religious meanings and obligations and common law marriage and divorce requirements.
