In the Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Laws (AIKOL), students read the Malaysian law, the common law, Islamic law and international law. Students are taught the theoretical side, as well as trained in the practical aspect, of the laws. This Kulliyyah aims to produce judges and lawyers capable of practising in both the civil court and the Syariah court systems. In order to achieve this, the Kulliyyah offers the programmes of Bachelor of Law (LL.B), LL.B (Shariah), Master of Comparative Law (MCL) and Ph.D.


 


The kulliyyah was set up and came into existence in 1983, simultaneous with the establishment of the International Islamic University Malaysia. From a modest establishment with 3 teaching staff and 59 students, the Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyyah of Laws has grown and developed rapidly. At present, there are about 112 teaching staff, more than 2,000 undergraduate students and more than 300 postgraduate students.


AIKOL offers an integrated curriculum wherein Islamic law is taught alongside the civil law. The concept of this curriculum was devised by its founding father: Al-Marhum Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Datuk Ahmad bin Mohamed Ibrahim (1916-1999).
