Legal Pluralism in Conflict is the result of the author's experience as a teacher and researcher in the field of ethnic minorities and the law. The book begins by developing a legal pluralist theoretical framework to analyse the interaction of ethnic minority laws and British laws, before examining the limits of existing approaches to legal education and charting the development of the alternative course of ethnic minorities legal studies.

The author goes on to examine why ethnic minorities have remained largely invisible in the existing work on public/constitutional law especially in arenas where ethnic minority laws and British state laws interact, such as homicide and polygamy. It critically discusses why state laws marginalize ethnic minority legal orders and includes a case study of Bangladeshi community conflict between English law and their own, plural mixture of legal inheritance.

The book also contains discussion of British nationality in the European context, a field with its own multiple legal pluralisms, but one where ethnic minorities are further penalised through the Europeanisation process.
