Paris Law Faculty

The structure designed by Jacques-Germain Soufflot for the Paris Law Faculty, on place du Panthéon.
Timetable of the School of Law of Paris (1847–1848).

The Paris Law Faculty (French: Faculté de droit de Paris) was one of the four and eventually five[1] faculties of the University of Paris.

Until the 19th century, the Paris Law Faculty was called "Faculté de décret" or "Consultissima decretorum". After the Edict of Saint-Germain of April 1679 reestablished the teaching of Roman law in Paris (which had been forbidden since 1223 by the decretal Super Specula), the faculty was known as the "faculty of civil and canon law". It was closed alongside other faculties on September 15, 1793, during the French Revolution.

In 1802, the faculty of law was re-opened, and was called "the School of Law of Paris" (l'École de droit de Paris). In 1896, the law faculty and the henceforth four other Parisian faculties were grouped together to recreate the University of Paris. In the late 1950s, it became a "faculty of law and economics". Following the events of May 1968, the University of Paris was divided into thirteen universities and its faculties were incorporated into them;[2] most of the law professors went to Panthéon-Assas University.[3]
