We previously discussed The Moral Realm and The Legal Realm in Common Law compared to Shari’ah Law. I found an interesting video that continues the discussion of the two different law systems, but also, in relation to Jurisdiction. The video is only a segment of the full film, but the full film is available for streaming through login. (Enter student ID) The film is mainly about a heated custody case in Nigeria that got a lot of attention and arise numerous questions.
Additionally, the film was produced in 2007 by BBC, so take into consideration that BBC is left-center biased when watching.
What is your opinion on Shari’ah Law in comparison to Common Law? Do you think they made the right decision? Was it fair and just?
