Couldn’t have worded it better than the Wall Street Journal:
George Mason University School of Law, named after a founding father known for his refusal to sign the Constitution, is renaming itself after a man famed for a strict adherence to its words: Justice Antonin Scalia.
George Mason University’s Board of Visitors, who are appointed by the Virginia governor, voted in favor of the renaming Thursday afternoon. The new full name of the Fairfax, Va., school will be the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University, school officials said. The school unveiled the name change Thursday afternoon, along with an announcement that it has received two donations totaling $30 million, including a $10 million grant from the Charles Koch Foundation.
