dc.description.abstract Ratno Lukito, Professor of Comparative Law at the Faculty of Syariah and Law; Vice Director of the Postgraduate Program at the Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. MA, Department of Islamic Studies at McGill University, Canada; Ph.D, Institute of Comparative Law at McGill University Faculty of Law. Abstract: Lawyers who practice before Islamic courts play a crucial role in framing and presenting the issues for decision and in mediating between the courts that apply Islamic law and the public who have recourse to the state’s official Islamic legal institutions, but research on the professional training and governance of these lawyers is almost entirely lacking at present. This article offers a descriptive overview of the training, work, and professional regulation of Islamic lawyers in contemporary Indonesia. This material is presented in a clear format, structured to highlight key aspects of how these lawyers are trained, accredited, and organized. In doing so, this article not only presents new empirical data on an increasingly important class of legal professionals, but also facilitates comparative reflections on their work in relation to that of their colleagues practicing before Shari‛a courts in the neighboring countries of Malaysia and Singapore. en_US
