Minority Topics / Re: umm...Muslims?

Salaams,
There is an islamic law concentration that you can take here at UCLA. Prof El Fadl had been ill the last few years so it hadnt progressed but now alhamdulilah he is back. He was recruited at Yale to start an Islamic Law program there but decided to stay here. After talking with him, his goal is to have a formalized program (notated on diploma) of Islamic Law. You can get an SJD in Islamic Law under his guidance. If we get more interest in the program, it will be up in no time. In the meantime, the course offerings are still offered per Prof. El Fadl's health.

And yea not to sound bias, but come to UCLA if at all possible, we could use some more "moslems" here if you know what i mean...we have the Journal on Islamic and Near Eastern Law (first one in the west), a newly established Muslim Law Students Association, and faculty that are strong committed to issues of common concern. (oh yea there is also the Islamic Studies Department which you can do a dual degree in...)

salaams,
fyi...there is no "rigid" lines for URM as most may think. most schools have abandoned any "official" policies regarding race (by law). If you are a Muslim, it will help you in you're application depending on how you strategically mention it.

and as for my favorite Muslim jurists of all time...i have great respect for all (May Allah be pleased with all of them). as law student, I think one has to come to appreciate the commonalities of Jurisprudence here in the US to that of Imam Abu Hanifa (RA) in reference to his analogical mechanism for deciphering the law...

Eid Mubarak!

you CAN return your your parking permit during the year. you will get refunded a prorated rate. It also depends on which type of pass you buy. You can just buy a monthly pass and renew so as long as you need it. The refund applies to quarter or annual passes.... (i asked these questions when i was getting mine) good luck.
