About the university
The University of Birmingham is a public research university located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom. It received its royal charter in 1900 as a successor to Queen’s College, Birmingham and Mason Science College, making it the first English civic or ‘red brick’ university to receive its own royal charter.
FW Tillyard was appointed as Lecturer in Commercial Law in the Faculty of Commerce, and he was subsequently Professor of Commercial Law from 1913-1930.
The Department of Legal Studies was established in 1923, where Professor Tillyard was joined by Charles Smalley-Baker, a young Canadian lawyer who was appointed as the first Barber Professor of Law. That department became the Faculty of Law in 1928, and Birmingham Law School in 2007.
