Research project

Humanizing Shariah: A Memoir of the Human Face of a Legal Practice

This project will address the practical as well as theoretical challenges of protecting women's rights under Shariah law as it is practiced in Northern Nigeria. It recounts a life spent working within the Islamic system and engaging the "fundamentalists" to achieve justice when defending women sentenced to death, while maintaining the highest global standard of rule of law and justice.
