Legal education and political science education of Hunan University can be traced back to the Shiwu Academy in1897. In 1926 the Law Department was set up as soon as the name of Hunan University was determined, and in 1945 the Law Faculty was established (3 departments including law department, political science department and economics department). Before the 1952 “grand adjustment of law departments”, Hunan University was one of the most essential parts of national legal education. In 1987, the original Hunan Institute of Economics and Finance started to enroll Law undergraduates, and the Law Department was re-established at that time, and the admission of Law faculty of the former Hunan University was restored in 1998. In 2000, after the combination of the former Hunan University and Hunan Institute of Economics and Finance, law faculty was newly established on the basis of law departments of the two schools. In the year 2010, for the development needs of university, the new Law Faculty was established with the combination of the law faculty and the Faculty of Political Science and Public Administration. Currently, there are three branches of discipline in the Law Faculty, they are Law, Political Science and Public Administration, respectively.
 
Now there are more than 90 teachers in the Law Faculty, including 25 professors and 40 associate professors, and more than 75% teachers have a Doctorate Degree. There are 3 majors in undergraduate level (more than 800 undergraduates), they are Law, Political Science and Public administration. The Law Faculty has the 1st Class Discipline Doctoral Degree Conferring Authorization and Center for post-doctor mobile unit. It also has a Doctor conferrable spot in interdisciplinary area of incorrupt government and regional public governance. It has 3 first-order disciplines authorized to confer Master's degree in law, political science and public administration, and 2 academic degree in JM and MPA. Currently there are more than 700 full-time postgraduates, 930 part-time postgraduates and more than 100 PhD students in our faculty. The program of Law is the key program of Hunan Province, and the course of economic law is the key construction curriculum of Hunan Province. Discipline of economic law is the key discipline of the 10th Five-Year Plan and the 11th Five-Year Plan of Hunan Province. In 2011, the Law Discipline was listed as key discipline at provincial level, and civil and commercial law discipline, criminal law and incorrupt governance discipline were regarded as preponderant discipline of Hunan Province.
 
Our faculty has formed an influential and distinctive academic research direction and has made a series of symbolic achievements on the base of economic law, civil and commercial law, Prevention of duty crime and punishment, measurement and evaluation of law, Rome Law, incorrupt governance and public administration, legal culture and so forth.

Our faculty has many advanced teaching and research facilities such as multi-functional lecture hall, mock court, case-analysis room and e-reading room. In 2002, judicial expertise center was established with approval of Ministry of Justice. Since 2007, the law faculty cooperated with institutes like National Intellectual Property (Hunan) training base, Hunan Institute of Education lawyer and Theoretical Study of Hunan Attorney (Hunan University) base.
