Spanish priest and professor of Civil Law. He was the son of the politician José Cafranga Costilla and Francisca de Pando. He started his academic training with the baccalaureate on Jurisprudence at the Universidad Central, after having studied three academic years of literature at the Escuelas Pías of San Fernando (Madrid). He continued with his studies and he was awarded a degree and a doctorate in Law by the Universidad Central.

His academic career was centred at the Universidad Central and it started in 1847 when he was an assistant lecturer at the Faculty of Law. Then, he became an assistant professor of the chair of Forensic Practise and after that he was in charge of the chair of International Law. In addition, he got the chair of Spanish Civil, Common and Regional Law, however, a royal decree reorganised the studies from the Faculty of Law and that chair disappeared so, he obtained the chair of History of the Most Important Treaties of Spain with other Powerful Countries instead. He refused it since he wanted the chair of Political and Administrative Law. Later on he changed it for the chair of Institutions of Public Law from Ancient and Modern towns. Due to a Royal Order in 1989 this chair was dissolved and one year later he was in charge of the chair of Elements of Natural Law. Nevertheless, he was back in the chair of Institutions of Public Law, where he finished his academic activity.

He held the following positions:

Secretary of the Academy of Jurisprudence in Madrid.

Vice president and censor of the Maritime Academy of Jurisprudence and Legislation.
