The University's Faculty of Law was inherited from the amalgamation of the University with Canberra University College in 1961 as part of the School of General Studies, then The Faculties in 1980. The Legal Workshop was introduced in the Faculty in 1972 and provided an alternative to taking articles as a means to enter the profession after completing the ANU Bachelor of Laws. In 2006 it was incorporated into the ANU College of Law.
