Around UND

This year, UND Law students Kate Drechsel and Ashley Bukowski led an effort to honor their professor, Julia Ernst and her family, who had tragically lost her 14-year-old son, Shuwang, in a drowning accident the previous summer. The Class of 2018 created the Shuwang Ernst Clement Memorial Scholarship endowment, which will be awarded each year to a first-year law student, with preference to students who reflect Shuwang’s compassion for others, and who will enhance diversity within the UND School of Law.
