Can I Switch to Following the Shafi’i School?

For various reasons, such as study or personal circumstances, there may be a need to change one’s Madhab (school of Islamic jurisprudence). Shaykh Faraz will clarify whether it’s possible to change one’s Madhab and when it’s appropriate to make this choice.
