(Harvard); Founding Director and Associate Professor, SLP] again taught a graduate-level course on Islamic finance at KU Leuven in February 2016. The course was a condensed version of the course on Islamic finance that Professor Asad teaches in LL.M. in Commercial Law program at 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.

 Professor Asad first taught the course at KU Leuven in February 2015. As before, he was the only Asian and the only Pakistani among the foreign professors teaching at KU Leuven. These other foreign professors hail from, among others, Oxford, Zurich, Geneva, Leiden, Utrecht, Barcelona, Michigan, and Illinois.

 As part of the exchange arrangement, a professor from KU Leuven or one of its partner universities teaches a course at SLP. 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.

 Established in 1425, KU Leuven is the first and the largest Belgian university and the oldest existing Catholic university. Also, it is among the top 100 universities in the world.
