When the High Court at Allahabad was established in 1866, need was felt for advocates for practising in the High Court and the District Courts. The minimum requirement for an advocate was Barrister qualification from England or Bachelor of Laws degree after graduation from Calcutta University. As such teaching of law was commenced in Muir Central College of Allahabad, affiliated to Calcutta University (estab. 1857), on December 31, 1972 with 39 students in English Section and 10 in Urdu Section. In 1887 Allahabad University was established, as a teaching – cum – affiliating University by a Central Order for the northern India barring the jurisdiction of Punjab University (estab. 1881) and Calcutta University. The Law Department also obtained a raised stature accordingly. Hon’ble Justice D. Straight was appointed the first president of Law Department in 1890. By an order in Council of the Governor of United Provinces, the Department of Legal Studies became a separate single Department Faculty of the University along with the Faculties of Arts, Science and Commerce in the Muir College campus of the University. Under the Indian Universities Act of 1904, the posts of Professor, Reader and Lecturer were recognised for the University. However, till 1921 the Law Department functioned with advocates as part-time teachers holding all the three cadres. In 1921 Professor Weir, a distinguished jurist became first Head of Law Department when the University was re-organised as a residential University by an Act of the United Province of British India. In 1936 two full-time posts of Reader were created on which Prof. K. K. Bhattacharya, LL.M. (London) and Prof. K. R. R. Sastri, ML (Madras) were appointed. Professor K.K. Bhattacharya became first full-time Professor in Law Department in 1949. In 1955, Law Department became first Department of Allahabad University with two posts of Professors in one Department of the University when an additional post of Professor of Jurisprudence was created.
