Here’s Why ‘Antonin Scalia School of Law’ Is a Hilarious Name For a Law School by Michal Addady @FortuneMagazine April 6, 2016, 5:41 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Linkedin Share icons George Mason University ran into an unforeseen problem when it tried to change its name. The school recently received a $20 million naming grant from an anonymous donor who requested that George Mason rename its law school in honor of the recently passed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The university announced the new name at the tail end of March, calling it the Antonin Scalia School of Law. Or ASSLaw. Or ASSoL. As you can probably imagine, that became a huge source of entertainment for people on social media.

Under the naming grant, the school has the right to a few different variations. The school Dean, Henry. S. Butler, said that they have landed on the Antonin Scalia Law School. The school has already updated its website to read, “the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.” The letter to students and alumni stated that the name change should go into effect at the beginning of July, as long as it’s approved by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.
