Sir Leon Radzinowicz established the Department of Criminal Science in the Faculty of Law during World War II, and in 1959 went on to found the Institute of Criminology, and also become the first Wolfson Professor of Criminology. The Wolfson Professor of Criminology is a senior professorship within the University. The position was the first of its kind in the United Kingdom and was established by the Wolfson Foundation. In September 2004, the Institute of Criminology moved into modern purpose-built premises on the University's Sidgwick Site. The Institute is a private educational institution.
