HOUSTON (AP) - A law school in Houston established nearly 100 years ago has a new name that adds one word to its old moniker to end a federal trademark dispute.

School officials Monday announced the former South Texas College of Law, which earlier this year changed its name to the Houston College of Law, will now be known as the South Texas College of Law Houston.

The University of Houston System sued in June alleging trademark violations. 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.

A court agreement was reached last month to again change the name of what for years had been the South Texas College of Law, established in 1923.
