Ex-South Texas College of Law in Houston Changing Name Again

HOUSTON ― An attorney says a downtown Houston law school will change its name again to end a federal trademark lawsuit filed by the University of Houston System.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Houston College of Law, formerly the South Texas College of Law, will announce its new name by Nov. 4 in a court agreement reached Wednesday.

The University of Houston System in June sued the Houston College of Law after the moniker change was announced. The system’s law school is the University of Houston Law Center.

UH officials objected to the competing law school’s new name, saying it was confusing to consumers.

Houston College of Law attorney Lynne Liberato says merchandise and billboards touting the June name change will be removed. The new name will also honor a benefactor.
