George Mason Tweaks Scalia Law School Name

Promotional image featuring a photo of late Justice Antonin Scalia and the words "Welcome to the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University."George Mason University last week announced it was renaming its law school to honor Antonin Scalia, the late Supreme Court justice. The school would be called the Antonin Scalia School of Law. Some then made fun of the acronym that was created (but never promoted by the university). The Wall Street Journal noted that while the official name of the law school hasn't changed, George Mason is now promoting the Antonin Scalia Law School, which avoids the unfortunate acronym.
