Historical Background

Law has been taught at Brunel University London (in the former Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) since the establishment of the University in 1966. A full Law degree was introduced in 1969, with the first degrees being awarded in 1973. August 2004 saw the creation of the School of Social Sciences and Law and a major expansion in the Law staff to its current size. Brunel Law School was established as a self-standing Law School in October 2006.When the University was restructured in 2014, it became part of the Department of Politics, History and Law which in turn is part of the College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences. Over the years, Brunel Law School has established itself as a major player in the UK law research landscape and is ranked as one of the top law schools in the UK for research. Students are the first beneficiaries of this research culture.
