At the time when the university was to be reestablished in Taiwan in 1960, the
Society of Jesus was given the responsibility for constructing a part of the school
campus, staffing the faculty as well as administrating the College of Law and Business.
In the fall of 1963, the university started its first school year on the present
campus, so did the College of Law. There were three departments in the College, namely,
the departments of Law, Economics, and Industrial and Business Management. In 1969,
under the approval of the Ministry of Education, the College of Law was divided into
two independent colleges: the College of Law and the College of Business. At this time,
the College of Law consisted of the Department of Law and the newly set-up
Department of Sociology, whereas the College of Business consisted of departments of
Economics, Business Administration, and Statistics-Accounting. In the fall of 1972, the
Department of Economics was returned to the College of Law.
In 1980, the Graduate Institute of Law was established. In 1981, to meet the
needs of our country and society, the Department of Sociology was divided into two
