  • I am very interested to become Islamic Finance Lawyer. However, I do not know how to be. Currently I am doing LPC and wanted to know if it is possible to do training contract solely in Islamic Finance either in UAE or in London and be a qualified Islamic Finance Lawyer. Although I do not have knowledge of Islamic Finance but willing to do Masters in Islamic Finance. If it's not possible, then is it possible after becoming qualified Solicitor in Legal Aid and then do Masters in Islamic Finance and start practicing as a Islamic Finance Lawyer. Please let me know if it is possible and how.

  • I wouldn't do Legal Aid and then try to become an Islamic Finance lawyer. Any law firm would ask what your motivations were for switching from something so different and why you didn't pursue that in the first place.

    Concentrate on learning as much about it as possible from books and the internet - even law firm updates are a good starting point. Develop a basic knowledge before you invest money into it. It's also worth knowing how Islamic finance contrasts or compliments wetsern finance too, as there will undoubtedly be a blurring of boundaries in the coming years.

    Speak to some good law firms that have reputable IF departments (A&O, CC and NR). I'm sure they would be happy to give some advice if you have a genuine interest.
