Many U.S. lawyers are aware that Islamic finance prohibits the taking of interest on a loan, but are not particularly well-informed about other practices and prohibitions respecting the actual operation of Islamic finance. This webinar will provide this general background, with a particular focus on the manner in which Islamic finance can be used in the context of real estate financings and other real estate transactions. The program will begin with an introduction into what Islamic finance is, and what its primary rules are. The speakers will then discuss general means through which Islamic finance operates without breaking formal prohibitions respecting the taking of interest or engaging in excessive forms of speculation. The program will conclude by describing how Islamic finance operates in depth with particular, practical examples concerning the use, transfer, and finance of real estate.
