Faculty of Law and Political Science

General presentation

The origins of Montpellier's Faculty of Law date back to the 12th century, when Placentin taught law in Montpellier.
Over the centuries, Montpellier's "University of Laws", which became the "Law School" and then the "Faculty of Law and Political Science", has remained true to its original vocation. It has trained generations of jurists from all countries and cultures. This is how its scientific renown, international reputation and ambitions in this field were forged.

For several years now, the Faculty has also been offering a comprehensive and innovative training program (bachelor's, master's, doctorate) in Political Science.
