Scots lawyers lead way with sharia advice
by Jasper Hamill
A Scottish law firm has become the first in the country to offer clients "conventional" legal representation alongside advice on sharia law.
Hamilton Burns, based in Glasgow's south side, has teamed up with an eminent Muslim scholar who will counsel clients on the Islamic aspect of civil law cases, while solicitors give advice under Scots law.
Clients will be able to see a Muslim lawyer who is fully trained in Scots law at the same time as they consult a sharia scholar who is an expert in Islamic law. It will be the first time such a service has been offered in Scotland.
