From the venue:

Michael J. Broyde, Professor of Law, Emory University; Saadia Memon, Attorney at Law; and Y. Khalid Siddiq, Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta discuss Shara’ih. Many State legislatures are considering a ban on Islamic Shari’ah. This issue has become contentious and polarizing. However, there is a tremendous lack of understanding of Islamic Shari’ah, its role in the lives of Muslims and their civil liberties, and its impact on society at large. Additionally, there are many legal challenges associated with this legislation. Learn about these issues with the hope that there will emerge a greater understanding and sensitivity to the issues involved.
