Ivanka Trump will have her own office in the West Wing of the White House that comes with a security clearance for classified information, although she will not have an official title, according to a White House official.

Trump will still comply with the ethics rules for government appointees though, even if she technically isn’t one, Trump’s attorney Jamie Gorelick told the Associated Press.

“Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not,” Gorelick told the AP.

Trump, whose husband Jared Kushner is a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, moved to Washington D.C. from New York and stepped down from both the Trump Organization and her clothing brand at the beginning of January.

“I plan to take time to settle our three young children into their new home and schools,” she wrote of her upcoming plans in a Facebook post announcing her decision.
