The Faculty is affiliated to the Faculty of Law of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi.

Inaugurated on 19th May 2014, the philosophy of the CUC Law Faculty Programme is to produce well-rounded graduates imbued with strong knowledge of the Law and high ethical values, and who are competent to function in any sector of the economy.
