George Mason Law names itself after Antonin Scalia, who would never have hired one of its grads
…aspiring lawyers can attend the Antonin Scalia School of Law but Antonin Scalia himself, as Above the Law’s Elie Mystal notes, would never have wasted his time on them.
“By and large,” Scalia told an American University of Law student in 2009, “I’m going to be picking from the law schools that basically are the hardest to get into. They admit the best and the brightest, and they may not teach very well, but you can’t make a sow’s ear out of a silk purse. If they come in the best and the brightest, they’re probably going to leave the best and the brightest, OK?”
