Texas Wesleyan University and Texas A&M University announced a letter of intent to begin a strategic partnership that would provide a premier legal education in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Tuesday, June 26.
Under the agreement, Texas A&M would acquire ownership and operational control of the law school as a going concern and all faculty and staff of the law school would be employees of Texas A&M. Texas Wesleyan University would retain ownership and control of the law school building and four city blocks of land at the downtown Fort Worth campus and would lease the facilities to Texas A&M.
Among the future offerings would be a joint law school JD/Texas Wesleyan MBA program, and also a Texas Wesleyan undergraduate/law school 3+3 program. These new programs exemplify how the partnership would allow for the development of collaborative academic programming that will have a lasting impact on students.
