Dean's Note

We learned today that South Texas College of Law has stated it is changing its name to Houston College of Law.  

The University of Houston issued the following statement regarding this development: 

"It has come to the University of Houston’s attention that South Texas College of Law has announced that it is changing its name to Houston College of Law.  The University of Houston Law Center has an established history of nearly 70 years in the City of Houston. The University of Houston is concerned about the significant confusion this creates in the marketplace and will take any and all appropriate legal actions to protect the interests of our institution, our brand and our standing in the communities we serve."

As Dean, I will protect the integrity and interests of the University of Houston Law Center.
