Research Guide on Religious Legal Systems in Comparative Law

The GlobaLex portal at New York University has just published an updated version of Religious Legal Systems in Comparative Law: A Guide to Introductory Research written by Marylin Johnson Raisch.

Raisch is the Librarian for International and Foreign Law at the John Wolff International and Comparative Law Library of the Georgetown Law Center.

The Guide offers an introduction to religious law with sections covering Islamic law, Jewish law, Christian Canon law, Hindu law, Buddhist Law and Confucian Law. Each section provides essential facts as well as details of Web, book and article sources available.

There is also a list giving details of how religious law is implemented in a number of jurisdictions.
