Historically rich, Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University is heir of the former Faculté de Droit et de Sciences Economiques de Paris, once comprising the Sorbonne and located in the heart of the Latin Quarter since the 13th century. At its origins, the University of Paris united four faculties: Theology, Medicine, Art, and Law.

For nearly five centuries the teaching of Law was centered exclusively on ecclesiastical law until, under the reign of Louis XIV, Colbert introduced the instruction of civil law, from which French law would eventually arise.
