Arab Law Quarterly is the leading English language scholarly publication on matters relating to the law of Arab states. It is indispensable not only for Arab law scholars, but also for those working in the fields of Middle Eastern law, Islamic law, and comparative law. The subject areas covered within the Journal include comparative works involving states both within and beyond the Arab world, works focused on law in a single state within the Arab world, and works describing the implementation of Islamic law in one or more Arab states. In addition to the foregoing, the Journal also publishes book reviews of recently published books, review essays of one or more recent books, and “current developments”, which are commentaries on recent laws, cases, administrative decisions, or other discrete jurisprudential developments of interest in the Arab world.
