In December 2018, Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky submitted a request to the Building Name Review Committee to remove the name of one of the law school's principal buildings, Boalt Hall.
Throughout the spring of 2019, the committee reached out to the Berkeley community for input on the proposal. The committee reviewed this feedback and submitted its recommendation to the chancellor in fall of 2019.
After approval by the chancellor and UC president, Boalt Hall's name was removed in January 2020.
