SUBJECT-MATTER

ISLAMIC LAW OF INHERITANCE- FAMILY LAW

ISLAMIC LAW OF INHERITANCE- JURISDICTION- LOCUS STANDI

Locus standi is the legal capacity  to institute an action in a court of law. Where a plaintiff is held to lack the locus standi to maintain an action, the finding goes to the issue of jurisdiction- as it denies the court jurisdiction to determine the action. Jurisdiction is in other words, a radical question of competence – a court can only be competent when the case comes by due process of law and upon fulfilment of any condition precedent to the exercise of jurisdiction”.
