George Mason University to Name Law School After Scalia


Him Again. George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia plans to rename their law school after the late Antonin “racial entitlement” Scalia according to a report in the The Wall Street Journal.  Scalia died in February.

The University’s board of directors and an agency in Virginia must approve the change before the name change is final.  Scalia was known for bloviating arrogantly and on race, affirmative action and voting rights.

Then there was this gem from the bench on affirmative action:

“There are – there are those who contend that it does not benefit African Americans to to get them into the University of Texas where they do not do well, as opposed to having them go to a less­-advanced school, a less – a slower-track school where they do well.
“One of – one of the briefs pointed out that – that most of the – most of the black scientists in this country don’t come from schools like the University of Texas. They come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they’re – that they’re being pushed ahead in – in classes that are too ­­ too fast for them.”

Millions in donations are riding on the name change including a $10 million donation from the Charles Koch Foundation.

Who is on the Board at George Mason University? Former Republican Rep. Tom Davis, Stuart Mendelsohn, Kelly McNamara Corley, Mahfuz Ahmed, Karen Alcalde
Stephen M. Cumbie, Kim Dennis, Claire Dwoskin, Anne Gruner, John Jacquemin
Robert Pence, David Petersen, Jon Peterson and Shawn Purvis.

  1. Law schools have been helping the students to learn the law and become the lawyers that will, later on, decide the future of the people who want to stand up for their rights. I think that the founders of the law schools will be happy to recommend the ReviewEssayService for their development of the writing skills. Naming the law school after this great person will give the learners the motivation and inspiration from this great person and activist. Thanks for this informative article and for the update on the news of education.
