This AHRC-funded project, ‘Social Cohesion and Civil Law: Marriage, Divorce and Religious Courts’, explored how religious law functions alongside civil law in the area of marriage and divorce. It examined the workings of three religious courts in detail: a Jewish Beth Din; a matrimonial tribunal of the Roman Catholic Church; and a Muslim “Shariah Council”). The project asked ‘What is the legal status of these courts?’ and ‘How do they operate in relation to marriage, divorce and remarriage?’
