CUNY Law: How to Anger your Friends and Alienate People

The folks at the CUNY Law Blog are getting hassled from their alma mater about the name of the blog because the administrators are worried the blog could be ‘misidentified as official communication from CUNY’. They would prefer the blog be named something like CUNY Law Students’ Blog. It’s not an altogether unreasonable request and rather pleasant as cease-and-desist letters go. In typical lawyer-like fashion however, CUNY admins have managed to simultaneously fix an imaginary problem, piss off their students and future alums, and stake a claim for douchbaggery across the blogosphere. As with any story, I’m sure there’s another side to this one, which I’d be interested in hearing. At this point, it’s quite a coup for the anti-PR department at CUNY law.
