Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?

Nari Wang (Rutgers School of Law–Newark)

Nari Wang decided to pursue law as a career “because it is a powerful tool to effect change.” Wang is the recipient of the Sill Cummis & Gross 2011 Charles J. Walsh Scholarship. In 2006, Sills Cummis & Gross established the Charles J. Walsh Scholar Fund on behalf of the family, friends and colleagues of the late Judge Charles J. Walsh who, prior to his appointment to the Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County, was a valued partner of the law firm for 17 years. Judge Walsh also served as an adjunct professor at Rutgers School of Law–Newark.

Chosen as the 2011 Charles J. Walsh Scholar for her academic promise, leadership qualities and commitment to using the law to help others, the scholarship funds Nari receives will provide financial and other assistance to help defray the cost of books and tuition and subsidize summer internship stipends.

An alumna of Dartmouth College, Wang received a bachelor’s degree in religion, with a minor in Jewish studies, in 2006. While at Dartmouth, she studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel for one semester.
