The faculty was founded in the 1880's and is one of the foundational and fundamental stones of the university. Our faculty was the first to train young jurists until the establishment of other law faculties at universities. After the University Reform of 1933, with the contribution of academics fleeing from Nazi regime, the principles of contemporary legal education originated and were developed at this institution. Many reputable, well-known figures and famous academics  such as Prof. Andreas Schwarz, Prof. Ernst E. Hirsch, Prof. Sıddık Sami Onar, as well as many judges, politicians, lawyers, writers, and journalists feature in the history of this faculty. The academic staff of our faculty is a proud of this heritage and their purpose are to retain and promote the tradition of high qualified education of the institution forever.

During eight-term (four years) under graduate education period, the aim is to teach students  basis of legal concepts, and to instruct them in approaching legal issues with an analytical and critical eye. The system of legal education is based on a programme of inter-active teaching, in which the students spent most of their time making studies in libraries. 

As a framework of public law, students have to take basic subjects such as constitutional, administrative and criminal law whereas as a structure of private law, law of obligations and commercial law must be taken as compulsory courses. There are also elective courses available on developing and progressive legal issues in an academic programme of the faculty.

Our faculty possesses the most comprehensive law library in Turkey, with a rich collection of periodicals and books. Our academic staff regularly publish the results of their research in the form of articles and books which influence the progress of the Turkish law. Moreover, many academics are working in an international platform and cooperate in an influential manner with foreign 

academic institutions.

There are numerous student clubs within the faculty, and some of them give students the opportunity to have education on abroad. Besides students take part in international mood courts and take advantages of trial practice in international arena while having a visit to United States or Netherlands for the competition. 2708 students are having education at faculty of Law at present.
