Eighth Harvard University Forum on Islamic Finance

The Islamic Finance Project of Harvard Law School cordially invites you to attend the Eighth Harvard University Forum on Islamic Finance. The Forum is scheduled for April 19 and 20, 2008, and will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Also we have scheduled a Pre-Forum Workshop on Islamic Microfinance to be held on Friday April 18, 2008 from 2-6p.m. Your registration to the eighth forum automatically qualifies you for this event as well.

We are particularly excited about the theme of this year’s Forum: “Innovation and Authenticity.” Nobel Laureate Robert C. Merton, University Professor at Harvard Business School, will be delivering the keynote address, which will be followed by a highly intellectual debate involving shari‘a scholars, academics, and industry professionals.
