sources of administrative law is consider into two: material and formal. And Islamic Laws are
made up of Shari'ah and Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh). Shari'ah is seen as sacred and
constitutes the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad's Sunnah (way), which is found in the Hadith
and Sira. Islamic jurisprudence is a complimentary expansion of the former by Islamic jurists.
And my favorite subject is civil law or private law, civil law is a part of law related to
particular relations , relations between people . The content of this semester is personal law,
family law, patrimonial law and inheritance law . Thats the base of the civil law study, and
this I studied this semester.
I like this subject because I think it has an important utility in the practice, we use
them a lot of times in our lives and for that reason , its important know how they are
regulated in the law .
In classes we saw this regulation, and a lot of real cases to better understand how they
develop in reality and the problems that can arise from them, this is what I most liked about
the course, because I learned the theory and problems encountered in practice.
I also liked the way the lecturers teach civil law. The lecturers teach systematically, it
makes me can understand the subject easily. Another reason why I like the civil law subject is
because I want to become a notary. Another subject that I liked is Administrative law and
Criminal law.
Now, I will explain about the civil law that Ive been learned during the lecture .
