The school was originally was founded in the late 1970s as the University of Bridgeport Law School, and was a part of Bridgeport University. When the university suffered financially in the 1990s it accepted monetary assistance from the Professor's World Peace Academy (PWPA), which had connections with the controversial founder and leader of the Worldwide Unification Church, Sun Myung Moon. As a result, the law school opted to separate from the university and ultimately merged with the financially stable Quinnipiac University in 1992.

Quinnipiac University School of Law was ranked at 107 for 2011 by US News and World Report. The school currently has 474 students enrolled in its JD degree program but also offers a joint JD/MBA degree, an LL.M in health law, and a certificate in healthcare compliance option.
