Under the direction of Law School Sterling Professors Owen Fiss and Anthony T. Kronman, the Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization at Yale Law School consists of the following components:

A lecture series on Islamic law and civilization: The lecture series continues the successful Dallah Albaraka Lectures on Islamic Law & Civilization, now the Abdallah S. Kamel Lectures on Islamic Law & Civilization, which have been hosted by the Law School for the past two years. The series will bring scholars, writers, and practitioners in a range of disciplines to Yale University for public lectures and discussions.

Research fellowships for fellows in residence at the Law School: The fellows will contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School while also building relationships among colleagues at the university.

Visiting professorships: The Abdallah S. Kamel Center for the Study of Islamic Law and Civilization at Yale Law School will host distinguished scholars in the field of Islamic law and civilization who will spend a semester at the Law School to teach courses in their area of expertise. Visiting professors will also offer public lectures and engage with students and faculty at the Law School and Yale University.

Student fellowships for advanced studies: Student fellowships will support research, travel, and training for students engaged in projects related to Islamic law and civilization.

The center was created with a generous gift from Abdallah S. Kamel, chief executive of the Dallah Albaraka Group, LLC, a banking and real estate enterprise based in Saudi Arabia.
