Administrative / Biographical history

Law has been taught at King's College London since it formally opened in 1831, and originally came under the Senior Department and then the Department of General Literature and Science. Under the Faculty of Arts from 1893, it was known as the Division of Laws and Economics. The Faculty of Laws was founded in association with the London School of Economics in 1909, and became known as the School of Law in 1989. It is a single department school, but is comprised of various research centres and groups, including the Centre of European Law and the Centre of Medical Law and Ethics, whose student records are included in this section.
