Days after George Mason University’s law school announced that it was renaming itself after Justice Antonin Scalia, the school is slightly adjusting what it’s calling itself — thanks to unforeseen and unfortunate wordplay, reports WSJ.
The name, officially, remains “The Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University” in honor of the late justice who died in February. But on its website and marketing materials, the name now reads: “The Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University”.
The university announced that it had received $30 million in combined gifts to the George Mason Foundation to support the law school. Twenty million dollars came from an anonymous donor, and $10 million came from the Charles Koch Foundation.
