CILIS runs numerous research activities throughout the year, many of them open to the public.  Please also follow our activities on Facebook and on Twitter.

CILIS Public Lectures

CILIS Public Lectures are presented by high-profile speakers. These seminars are relevant to academics, government and business organisations, as well as the community.

Research Seminars

The CILIS Research Seminars are informal seminars, which are often presented by postgraduate students. These seminars are open to the public, but are usually attended by the University community. Students are able to gain feedback on their current research, while contributing to the continued research in Islamic legal studies.

Annual Conference

CILIS hosts an annual Islamic Studies Postgraduate Conference in conjunction with the National Centre of Excellence for Islamic Studies. This conference is open to students both locally and internationally, who are researching Islam-related topics. Information on the annual conference is usually available from mid-June each year.
