Brunel Law School 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 School staff to its current size.

In August 2017, the Brunel Law School became a stand-alone department as part of a restructure 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.
