Part of the Faculty of Law and Political Science of Montpellier since 2019, the Legal Clinic of Montpellier receives important support from the Faculty of Law of Montpellier: the Legal Clinic of Montpellier has thus been allocated a working room in the Cloister of the Faculty by Dean Guylain Clamour.
The Faculty of Law and Political Science of Montpellier has a rich history and a very high reputation. Indeed, the origins of the Faculty of Law of Montpellier date back to the 12th century. The University, whose creation was officialized by the papal bull “Quia sapientia” of October 26, 1289, is among the first generation of Universities of the Middle Ages.
It has trained generations of lawyers from all countries and cultures.
Among his former students are:
-Jean-Jacques-Régis de Cambacérès (1753-1824): one of the drafters of the code that would inspire the Napoleonic Code (or Civil Code unofficially). He was also Minister of Justice during the First Empire.
-Paul Valéry (1871-1945): French writer.
-Jean Moulin (1899-1943): French Resistance fighter
