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.

justice antonin scalia

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.

Heh.

  • They can give it as many new names as they like it will always be good old ASSOL to us.

    Unfortunate??

    Most of the public universities in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina have reduced academic freedom and sacrificed their integrity in order to receive funding from the Koch’s (and their friends) for various and sundry academic institutes. It is very hard to find any tenured person under 40 in the social sciences who has liberal politics working in those schools.

    For what it is worth it isn’t the entire university, but just select grad schools within the university. I attended the School of Public Policy (right next to the Law School and Mercatus center) in Arlington and it wasn’t a hotbed of right wing ideology in anyway. All my professors were interested in was teaching the subject and keeping the students engaged and interested in the subject matter. It was a great experience and likely very different from the Law School and the Mercatus Center.

    “Then again, George Mason University, the school in northern Virginia where the law school is hosted, is already a hotbed of uber-conservatism.”

    That is absolutely true. I took a couple of night classes there when I lived in northern VA. I began calling it “John Birch University.”

    The Koch Bros have bankrolled the Mercatus Center, which pumps out pro-freemarket propaganda. The econ department is a hotbed of “Austrian economics.” Even the Austrians disavow “Austrian economics.”

    Unfortunate? I say spot on. Also, could not have happened to a nicer guy. ?

    T-shirt complete with Twitter hashtag.

  • I suspect there will be unofficial t-shirts for years :)

  • They should’ve left it as ASSoL, for the sake of truth in advertising.

    It’s not “unfortunate”; unforeseen, maybe…definitely not unfortunate. Very appropriate, actually.
