George Mason to Rename Law School After Justice Scalia

After an approximately $30 million dollar donation, one of the largest the school has ever received, George Mason University has agreed to rename its law school after the late Justice Antonin Scalia.  As part of the terms of the donation, with money partially received from the Koch brothers/Koch Foundation, the George Mason University School of Law will convert its name from Mason Law to the Antonin Scalia School of Law or Scalia Law School for short.  The Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post both published articles about the change on or around April 1st, but the name change is no April Fool’s joke.
