Panthéon-Assas University - Paris IIplace du pantheon

Panthéon-Assas University, commonly referred to as "Assas" or "Paris II", is a public research university in Paris. It was established to succeed the Faculty of Law and Economics of the University of Paris, when the latter was divided into 13 autonomous universities, following the events of May 1968.  It is considered the most prestigious law faculty in France.

Located mainly in the Latin Quarter, in the heart of Paris, its main campus is on place du Panthéon and rue d'Assas.  The building once designated as the Faculty of Law, in and of itself, bears testimony to a rich past, witnessing changes in form and function from its construction in 1770 and subsequently.  It was first part and parcel of the vast urban planning project that circumscribed the Panthéon, then transformed into city hall during the Revolution, extended in the 19th century and again in the 1950's once its original purpose, was reinstated in 1805.

Did you know...

The University of Paris was founded in the mid-12th century with four faculties: Arts, Medicine, Law, and Theology.  The University was suspended from 1793-1896, and then dissolved in 1970.  It was often referred to as the Sorbonne after the Collège de Sorbonne, the theological college that was part of the University.  Of the thirteen current successor universities, four have premises in the historical Sorbonne building, and three of them include Sorbonne in their names.
