The Name Game at George Mason University

Looks like next year’s law school graduates will have “Antonin Scalia Law School” on their sheepskins.

After a petition drive and some large grants conditioned on the name change, to honor the late SCOTUS justice, a Commonwealth of Virginia board has determined it has no jurisdiction over the naming.

Scalia isn’t an alumnus, but George Mason has a reputation for conservative legal and political scholarship, which makes it a good fit.

In an era of petty name-stripping (think Robert E. Lee, Woodrow Wilson, et. al.), it’s good to see a fitting and well-deserved honor.

Disaster was averted at the last minute though: they were orginally proposing the name “Antonin Scalia School of Law” until someone noticed the acronym, “ASSOL”. Hence, “Antonin Scalia Law School” instead.

And fewer lawyer jokes.
