UC-Hastings Changing its Name to ‘College Of The Law, San Francisco’

UC-Hastings Changing its Name to ‘College Of The Law, San Francisco’

“will be sent to Governor Newsom for his signature and will become effective in January 2023”

Back in November, the school decided to change its name because the founder had ties to slavery. They’ve now settled on a new name.

From the Hastings webesite, via the TaxProfBlog:

Today, the UC Hastings Board of Directors voted unanimously on a resolution to remove “Hastings” from our name in the California Education Code and replace it with San Francisco. This recommendation now heads to the California State Legislature to revise Assembly Bill 1936, which will amend provisions of the California Education Code to conform to the new name. If the recommendation is approved by both houses of the legislature, it will be sent to Governor Newsom for his signature and will become effective in January 2023. If all that happens, beginning in 2023, our great school will be known as University of California College of the Law, San Francisco or, for short, UC College of the Law, San Francisco, or shorter still, UC Law SF.

UC Hastings College of the Law, the historic California school grappling with the legacy of its namesake, should be renamed College of the Law, San Francisco, a school committee charged with considering new monikers has recommended.

The school’s board of directors will weigh the recommendation at a meeting Wednesday in San Francisco. If approved, the new name will be forwarded to the Legislature for possible inclusion in legislation to strip the name of Serranus Hastings, California’s first chief justice who historians have linked to the killing of hundreds of Yuki Indians in Mendocino County’s Eden and Round valleys in the 1850s.

Sounds dumb enough for Californica. Not nearly as bad as their attempt to take Washington’s and Lincoln’s name off of schools there.

How many schools can carry the name St. Floyd?

None of this matters. In two years they’ll decide that “the law” is a racist term, and they’ll have to rename it something like Baskin-Robbins.

Funny how the historical vandals are fuzzy on the details.
