The London-based Law Society apologised for putting out a guidance note which told solicitors to draw up sharia wills that give male heirs double the amounts inherited by women. It also told lawyers they should cut illegitimate and adopted children out of any inheritance. Andrew Caplen, president of the professional body for solicitors, said: ‘We reviewed the note in the light of criticism. We have withdrawn the note and we are sorry.’ The guidance, issued to lawyers amid deep controversy in the spring, was seen as a major advance for sharia law. The religious legal code is seen by critics as discriminating against women and running contrary to basic principles of English law.
