John Marshall Law School is set to become part of the University of Illinois at Chicago, making it the Windy City’s first public law school.

Officials at both institutions signed off on the university’s acquisition of the private law school Thursday afternoon, after more than two years of discussions. The law school will become the UIC John Marshall Law School once the transition is complete in the fall of 2019. Administrators said the move is not a merger because the law school is coming fully under the university’s umbrella of programs. No money is exchanging hands between the two institutions, and all of John Marshall’s assets, including faculty and real estate, will transfer over to the university.
