Law Students Sue Texas A&M for Alumni Status

August 14, 2015

Law students are suing Texas A&M University, saying the institution is taking credit for their work but not giving them alumni status.

Texas A&M purchased the Texas Wesleyan School of Law in Fort Worth in 2013 for $73 million, and in its advertising touts the achievements of the school's students before the merger. Yet much to the anger of former Wesleyan students, Texas A&M is not granting the graduates alumni status.

According to The Houston Chronicle, after the merger Texas Wesleyan effectively ceased to exist, leaving thousands of students who graduated from law school there without an alma mater that will recognize them.
