- The Faculty of Law, Osmania University has a glorious history of more than 100 years. The “Law class” was opened in the year 1899 to give instruction in law to students desirous of joining the legal profession along with “Judicial Test” classes for Judicial Officers. Thus the teaching of Law was in existence even before Osmania University came into existence in the year 1918.
- In the year 1923, the “law class” and “Judicial Test” classes were abolished and the Law Department was established in the Osmania University at the Arts College with a Head and two teachers, who were supported by the part-time lecturers to cope up with the teaching work. The University made a successful experiment of teaching law in vernacular language, namely, Urdu. At that time Urdu was the court language too. The Translation Bureau translated all the leading textbooks into Urdu. From 1923 to 1934 there were only five papers for both years. But in 1935 one paper each was added to both the years. The classes were held in the morning. Hardly there were a hundred students in both years put together.
- In 1942, the LL.M. course was introduced with Comparative Jurisprudence and Comparative Constitutional Law as compulsory subjects with an option to choose either International Law or Conflict of Laws and Muslim Law or Hindu Law. Students of LL.M. had to submit a thesis on a subject studied by them in LL.B. and LL.M. In view of heavy demand for admission to the Law course, the Law Department of the Arts College has been elevated into a full-fledged Law College in the year 1950 and shifted to Saifabad Science College in the city. The Law College used to function in the evening from 6.00 to 8.30 p.m. and the medium of instruction was changed to English. In 1954 the college was shifted from Saifabad Science College to Chaderghat College building situated at Tilak Road, Hyderabad. Due to lack of accommodation, a morning session in 1956 was started in the same building for the convenience of the students.
- From 1942 to 1958 students of LL.M. had no choice of subject, as all subjects were compulsory except the choice between Hindu Law and Muslim Law. In 1958 LL.M. syllabus was revised and another branch viz., Constitutional and International Law was started. Within a few years, the Personal Laws branch was added. In 1966, Mercantile Law was also introduced. In 1958 University Grants Commission sanctioned Rs.8 lakhs for constructing Law College Building. The Law College Building was constructed on the Campus and the Morning session of the Law College was shifted to the new Building.
- Justice P.Jagan Mohan Reddy, the then Dean, Faculty of Law took an active interest in establishing the institution. The University College of Law was inaugurated in 1960 by the then Chief Justice of India Sri B.P.Sinha. Prof .G.C.V .Subba Rao was the first Principal of the College. The LL.M. Courses were shifted to the University College of Law in the same year. Four branches of LL.M. i.e., Jurisprudence, Constitutional Law and International Law, Personal law, and Mercantile Law were offered by the College
