The Western Michigan University Thomas Cooley School of Law? Could happen, if the current proposal for a new formal alliance is approved. They would remain separate institutions, formally, with separate governance structures. I'm not sure how much this would be like the linkage between Detroit College of Law and Michigan State University, resulting in the current Michigan State College of Law. The new school remains independent of MSU, notwithstanding its name.
For Cooley, this would be a major branding event - affiliating the school with a state university. For Western State, the situation seems similar to the Southern New England School of Law - UMass Dartmouth merger. Just as UMass Dartmouth was unlikely to get a law school without the merger, Western Michigan seems similarly unlikely to gain a law school without this proposal.
