Law School Changes Name

George Mason University has announced that it is changing the name of its law school from The George Mason School of Law to The Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University.

scaliaThe force behind the name change, as is usually the case, is money: in this case, $20 million from an anonymous donor and $10 million from Charles Koch, one-half of the infamous Koch brothers were enough to purchase a new name and honor the late Supreme Court Justice.

No word yet on whether applicants to the school will need to demonstrate that they are absolutely bat-shit crazy.

      Yes. I was going to do a follow-up piece: there’s been displeasure over both the idea of naming a school after Scalia and also about the unfortunate acronym. You are indeed astute.
