The law faculty of the UBA

It was founded on August 12, 1821 and consists of 14 faculties , 6 clinics , 10 museums and the high schools Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires , Instituto Libre de Segunda Enseñanza and Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini .

Despite its size, there is no central campus . There were plans for a Ciudad Universitaria , a university "city", but these were never fully implemented due to lack of funds.
