In Practice

The Association of Muslim Lawyers has been active since 1993 and since its official launch in 1995 its membership and influence have been steadily growing. The various talks, seminars, conferences and careers workshops organized by AML since its inception have helped bring Muslim lawyers together - both professionally and socially. They havealso assisted lawyers not only to provide invaluable advice and assistance to the Muslim community, but also society as a whole.


Islam is based on divine revelation; and acts as a filter to its followers with the aim of retaining what is good in a society whilewhilst removing what is considered to be harmful. This is an ongoing process, which like health is in need of constant attention and action. Part of this process of change and transformation is the review of existing laws and proposing amendments and new law whilst fully respecting the law of the land being the prevailing law at all times.
