About Us

Faculty of Shari‘ah and Law was established as a Government institute in 11th August 1999, but was subsequently incorporated into Maldives National University in 2011. 

Faculty of Shari‘ah & Law is an established center of research in classical Islamic law as well as in contemporary legal education. The Faculty is a pioneer institution which is trying to bridge the gap between Islamic Laws and Contemporary Laws. The Faculty is not only trying to bring harmonization between Law and Shari‘ah but it is also trying to contribute in the development of Islamic Laws in accordance with the needs of the time.

A large number of students graduated from the faculty are working in the judicial, litigation and teaching departments throughout Maldives and worldwide.
