About Islamic Law Online
Content of Database
Islamic Law Online is a collection of English language materials on Islam available throughout the world. It includes books, chapters in books, journal articles and theses, but does not include newspapers, magazines or unpublished articles.
CILIS takes a broad view of the interconnectedness of law and society. The database therefore also includes some selected materials dealing with the historical, cultural, social and economic backgrounds of Islam. It is, however, not exhaustive.
This database does not claim to be complete. Any assistance that you, the user, can provide in identifying materials or providing bibliographic material is very much appreciated.
Have we missed something?
Of course, it is impossible for us to have captured all relevant material. If you think we have missed something, please contact CILIS.

Using the Database
Searching the Database
The database is organised according to countries, but also includes a selection of basic subject areas that are not confined just to law.
The database can be searched for any word or a more specific advanced search can be conducted.
This database does not provide users with the full-text or abstract of articles. Links to some online full-text resources or the library catalogue of the University of Melbourne are provided.
Resources from the Asian Law Centre library (ALC) are also listed. Keys for the Asian Law Centre library are available from Kathryn Taylor in Room 0726, Level 7, Melbourne Law School.
If articles do not have a location listed, they are usually not available at the University of Melbourne libraries. If this is the case, they might be available via inter-library loan.
