Antonin Scalia School of Law (ASSOL) renamed due to unfortunate acronym

The newly-named Antonin Scalia School of Law has been renamed after its creators realized the school acronym is now ASSOL.

I am not making this up.

The school, named after the recently-deceased Supreme Court justice, will henceforth be named the Antonin Scalia Law School.

Conservative Supreme Court Justice Antoni Scalia.

NPR reports that, not surprisingly, some of the law students, and prospective law students, are none too thrilled with attending a school with the name “Scalia” in it.

Then again, George Mason University, the school in northern Virginia where the law school is hosted, is already a hotbed of uber-conservatism. So if you attend George Mason, you kind of knew what you were getting into, ASSOL.
