Welcome to the Department of Legal and Constitutional History

The Department of Legal and Constitutional History is part of the Law Faculty at the University of Vienna. It has a long and successful history that dates back more than 150 years. The Departments roots can be traced back to 1851, when George Philipps was appointed as professor of History of the German Empire and German Law. Since 1951, a variety of reforms have taken place, reshaping both the Department and the curriculum of legal studies at the University of Vienna.

Today, the Department aims to further modernize the History of Law as a subject, and to introduce new generations of law students to Legal and Constitutional History.
