Ms. Wang was chosen for her academic promise, leadership qualities and commitment to using the law to help others. Ms. Wang decided to pursue law as a career “because it is a powerful tool to effect change.”

Ms. Wang received a B.A. in religion, with a minor in Jewish studies, from Dartmouth College in 2006. While at Dartmouth, she studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel for a semester.

The Charles J. Walsh Scholar Fund will provide financial and other assistance to Ms. Wang in the form of scholarship support, summer internship stipends, mentorship during law school and career guidance.

Max Crane, Sills Cummis Managing Partner, stated: “Our commitment to the New Jersey law school community continues with our fifth Charles J. Walsh Scholar. Mentoring young law students enriches the Firm as a whole and we are pleased to welcome Nari as a first year law clerk this summer. It’s something that Chuck would have heartily endorsed.”
