Historically rich, University Panthéon-Assas 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.
Considered as France's first law university, University Paris II Panthéon-Assas is dedicated to upholding the tradition from which it arose, preserving, yet ever-striving to raise its level of excellence in the following disciplines: Private Law and Criminal Science, Public Law, Political Science, Roman Law, History of Law, Economics , Management, Information and Communication Sciences.
Research is at the essence of academic distinction and stature, whether on a national, European, or international scale. University Paris II Panthéon-Assas thus endeavors to:
Our extensive partnerships not only with major French, European, and International agencies, but also with major financial and industrial firms, ensure anchorage in the professional world and guarantee the veritable polyvalence for which we are known.
Devoted not only to maintaining but to expanding its international standing, scope, and prestige, University Panthéon-Assas gives precedence to :
Attentive to students' needs, the university provides academic programs adapted to and organized within the LMD framework.

The university encourages, sponsors, and organizes a full array of pedagogical, professional, athletic and cultural activities from conferences and symposiums, debates and discussions, to moot courts and awards ceremonies, sporting events and celebrations...events follow, one after the other, as a kind of perpetual testimony to the richness of university life and the exchange that it encourages.
What is more, by the sheer diversity, spirit, and vitality of the student associations within our walls, this reservoir of recreational initiatives is continually enriched and replenished.
You can choose over sixty athletic activities (among them rowing, boxing, fencing, soccer, swimming, rugby, yoga...), as well as specialized training. Spread over 200 time slots, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, these opportunities are accessible at beginning, intermediate, and competition levels.
At the origin of fifty or more associations, are students willing to take on all issues (academics, sports, music, societal debates, acts of solidarity), defending their opinions and predilections, affirming their centers of interest, promoting their university. They create spaces of mutual help and conviviality as constructive as they are formative, where, even in the air of festivity, their core values of democracy, citizenship, justice, and creativity hold firm.
For those wanting to create an association, the Cultural Service is there to help, assisting with the modalities or eventually attributing financial aid through the FSDIE (Fonds de solidarité et de développement des initiatives étudiantes).
