Affiliations: 1: School of Oriental and African Studies, London University. Translations from the Koran are Pickthall's, George Allen & Unwin, 1930; translations from the UAE Civil Code are from J. Whelan and M. J. Hall (trans.) The Civil Code of the United Arab Emirates: The Law of Civil Transactions of the State of the United Arab Emirates, Graham & Trotman, 1987; other translations are the author's, unless otherwise indicated. In order to make references easier to find, all works referred to in the list of references (apart from the Majalla) bear a date. This indicates the edition consulted, not necessarily the year when the work was composed. A simplified transliteration system has been used. The formatting of quotations has been harmonized with those used herein. References to articles without more are references to articles of the Majalla. The author is grateful to Professor William Ballantyne and Simon Buckingham of Travers Smith Braithwaite for advice and sight of their lecture notes, Makeen Makeen, Ramnath Narayanan of Clifford Chance, Dubai and Antoine Adeline of Hammond Suddards Edge, Paris for reading respectively the sections on shari'a, the UAE and France in an earlier draft, Muhamad Salih for assistance with some difficult Arabic and Dahlia 1 Gubara and Dalia Al-Sayeh for their assistance in research. The usual caveat applies.
