Studies in Law have been directly linked to the city of Girona since 1446. After a period in which law was absent from the educational programme, students were offered a possibility to study the first part of the course in Law at Girona during the 1986-1987 academic year. The second part began to be taught from 1988-1989 academic year on and the Faculty of Law started offering two-year doctoral programmes from the 1992-1993 academic year on.
Finally, a new stage arrived during the 2008-2009 academic year: the new bachelor's and master's degrees were designed which make up the Faculty's current range of educational offers. The Bachelor's degree courses in Law and Criminology and in Political Sciences and Administration, then, were launched in the 2009-2010 academic year.

The city of Girona and its environment
The province of Girona is located in the north-east of Catalonia. Boasting a Mediterranean climate, it offers a microcosm in a small area along the lovely Costa Brava up to the Pyrenees.
Its capital of the same name is found some 100 km from the centre of Barcelona and half an hour from the French border.
The city of Girona is a very active cultural and commercial core and a tourist centre of the first order. It is welcoming, small and dynamic, very well connected and with numerous attractions, such as the cathedral, the Tapís de la Creació [Girona Tapestry] and the former Jewish quarter. What makes Girona so seductive is its history and a present capable of linking the legacy of its traditions with the demanding modern-day services, not to mention a natural environment of great value. The high-speed train cuts the 100 km journey between Girona and Barcelona down to 39 minutes and the journey times to Madrid and Paris to a little over three and a half hours and six hours respectively. The city has also an airport connecting Girona through low-cost airline flights to Europe's main cities.
