This scholarship was established through a gift by Barbara Shafranski in the name of her husband. James A. Shafranski was a 1977 graduate of the LSU Law Center who practiced law in New Brunswick, NJ. Prior to his death on August 23, 2004, Shafranski requested that an endowed scholarship be set up at the LSU Law Center. The recipient of this scholarship will be 2L in good standing with preference given to residents from New Jersey. If there are no students from that state, then a student may be chosen based on financial need.
