Syed Imad ud Din Asad, Director SLP, is teaching, a graduate-level course on Islamic Finance at KU Leuven. This is a part of the ongoing collaboration with Katholieke Universitiet Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium, for faculty exchange.
The course is a condensed version of the course on Islamic Finance that is being taught in LL.M. in Commercial Law program at UMT School of Law and Policy (SLP), which also serves as a testament to the fact that the quality of courses offered by SLP is at par with the ones offered by top law faculties in the developed world.
Syed Imad ud Din Asad is the only Pakistani and the only Asian among the foreign professors who are teaching at KU Leuven. The other foreign professors hail from, among others, Oxford, Zurich, Geneva, Leiden, Utrecht, Barcelona, Michigan, and Illinois.
SLP is the only law school in Pakistan which is engaged in active collaborations with European and North American law faculties that not only entail knowledge sharing but also cultural interaction. All of these collaborations are based on reciprocity and equality. No other law school in Pakistan has achieved this level of recognition and distinction.
It is worth mentioning that KU Leuven was established in 1425; it is the first and the largest Belgian university; it is the oldest existing Catholic university; and it is among the top 100 universities in the world.
