  •  Of course you can, and it's stupid to stop it (3+ / 0-)

    In a contract, for example, you can have a choice of law
    clause and the parties can agree to any law they like.
    If, for example, you pick Delaware law, courts in Florida
    will try and apply it (you can also agree to litigate in
    Delaware, but you don't have to--choice of law and choice
    of forum are different.)

    Anyway, there is no reason why you can't pick sharia law.
    You won't see that in your credit card contract, but if
    you are contracting with companies in the Gulf states, they
    may expect their local sharia-based law to control the terms.

    If that were the case, wouldn't you want to be able to
    litigate in your home state?
