The Department of Jurisprudence was founded at Berkeley in 1894. In 1912, this department was elevated to the School of Jurisprudence, which was then renamed the School of Law in 1950.

The School was originally located in the Boalt Memorial Hall of Law, built in in 1911 with funds largely from Elizabeth Josselyn Boalt and named in memory of her late husband, John Henry Boalt. In 1951 the School moved to its current location in the new Boalt Hall, at the southeast corner of the central campus.
