INTRODUCTION In a previous number of this Quarterly, we published the First Coulson Memorial Lecture given by Sir Norman Anderson at the School of Oriental and African Studies (S.O.A.S.), London University: in this issue we publish the second delivered by our General Editor. One of the prime considerations in assessing a legal problem in any of the Arab jurisdictions must always be the extent to which, if at all, the Islamic Shari'a applies. The Shari'a runs like a golden thread through the jurisprudence, but the degree of its application varies minimally, if at all, for example in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait et al at one end of the scale; but reigning supreme in Saudi Arabia at the other. In selecting articles for this Quarterly, we are ever mindful of the vital importance of these considerations and try to maintain a content balanced between articles devoted to the Sha4'a and the secular law. In the first lecture, Sir Norman ended with the rhetorical question as to whether the future trend of Arab jurisprudence would be towards reassertion of the Shari' a; in the lecture published in this issue, Professor Ballantyne takes up the matter from where Sir Norman left it
