Stunned is the word that came to mind most frequently to describe the faculty, alumni and local bar after Temple University’s law school announced in February that it was changing its name to the James E. Beasley School of Law.

The signs were changed a few days later, and the transformation, in honor of a prominent Philadelphia personal injury attorney who had donated an undisclosed amount of money to the school, was complete. While few people are willing to publicly criticize Mr. Beasley’s beneficence outright, his gift and the name change have engendered not only enormous gratitude, but anger as well.
