The Faculty of Law and Political Science first offered its Law degree in only the University's second year of operation, academic year 1996-97, thanks to the drive and enthusiasm of a small group of lecturers along with a handful of collaborating lecturers, counsellors and tutors.

Since then, the Faculty of Law and Political Science's activity has multiplied almost exponentially.

From a teaching point of view, the Faculty of Law and Political Science currently offers two official and six UOC-specific programmes with over 4,500 students who are accompanied in the learning process by 300 collaborating lecturers.

From a research point of view, the Faculty has become a leader on the impact of the Internet on law and politics. This activity is disseminated via different means: the Internet, Law and Politics Conference (Congreso Internet, Derecho y Poltica); the electronic magazine of the same name; the regularly-organized conferences; and the articles and other scientific and consultancy works carried out by the faculty.

You can find out more about these and other aspects in this website, which aims to disseminate the activity carried out and promoted by the UOC's Faculty of Law and Political Science and to provide a communication channel with the people in the Faculty's teaching and management teams.

I trust it will be of use both to our community and to those navigating through cyberspace who land here in search of information on our activity.
