Jean Moulin University Law school: a school fraught with history
The Lyon law school, which is now a part of the Jean Moulin University-Lyon 3, was created by decree issued on October, 29, 1875, by Marechal Mac Mahon. The university palace, located at 15 quai Claude Bernard, on the banks of the Rhône, which still houses the university's head office, was inaugurated by French President Felix Faure on May, 1, 1896.

A school within the city
The school has two campuses: the main campus, at the heart of Lyon (15, quai Claude Bernard), contains the Master's classes and the Research Centres, while the Licence classes have been held at the new campus called the Manufacture des Tabacs (an ancient Tobacco Manufactory located at 6 cours Albert Thomas, to the east of the city centre) since September, 1993. In addition, the Law school operates a satellite campus in Bourg-en-Bresse (located at 2, rue du 23e R.I. - 01000 Bourg-en-Bresse, in the city centre).
L'Ecole de Notariat, which is linked to the Jean Moulin university by a convention, is located at the rue Chevreul. The Ecole de Notariat falls within the jurisdiction of the courts of appeal of Chambéry, Grenoble and Lyon, and prepares students for licence and for notaire degrees.
A technologically advanced Law school
Since 2000, the Law school has put an online instructional platform at the disposal of its students. The Faculté de Droit Virtuelle (F.D.V.) is the digital law campus reporting the highest number of students enrolled in France. It contains a vast number of resources, and offers an online tutoring program.
