Change Label next to Symbol in Table of Contents for the Legend

I'm trying to write a script to change the label next to the symbol in the TOC so it appears in the legend. Arcpy has a way to change the name of the layer, but I can't seem to find a way to change the text one level below that. They also have a way to change unique symbol texts and descriptions, but that's not what I need either. Am I just missing it in the tutorials/help pages?

It's just the text box in the layer's Properties under the Symbology tab. There's a box that says "Legend" and then "Label appearing next to the symbol in table of contents." I've attached a picture of the box that I want to change. It's where it says "Positive CSC". Any help would be appreciated.
