FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M University has completed its purchase of the private Texas Wesleyan School of Law in Fort Worth.
A&M officials in College Station say the deal closed Monday. The new school will be named the Texas A&M University School of Law going into the fall term.
A&M officials say all accreditations for the law school remain in effect.
A purchase agreement was announced in June 2012. No acquisition cost was immediately released.
A&M has pursued adding a law school for more than 40 years.
Texas Wesleyan was founded in 1890 and is affiliated with the United Methodist Church.
