Nicole Fauster (L’20) met Cedric Asiavugwa (L’19), her Georgetown Law public interest mentor, in the fall of 2017, when she entered Georgetown Law as a member of its Public Interest Law Scholars program.
They were in the same mentorship group in PILS, later known as the Blume Public Interest Scholars Program. In her second year, as president of the Muslim Law Students Association, Fauster also worked with Cedric, as the friendly 3L worked in Campus Ministry.
“He was Campus Ministry’s go-to guy,” Fauster said. “I definitely saw him on a very regular basis, putting together programming…whenever you passed by Campus Ministry, he was at that table, doing work, assisting the chaplains. One of the reasons I would go to Campus Ministry when I was going from class to class was to say hi to Cedric. He is definitely going to be someone whose loss will be deeply felt.”

One week into the new year, Georgetown Law students sat in a rearranged classroom, in two concentric circles. In the center, the flame of a small candle flickered on the floor, surrounded by a wooden elephant from India, a frisbee, a running shoe, a ring from Rwanda made from melted down padlocks, a family photo and a watch.
On the wall of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, a photo of the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall is one of the first images Georgetown Law 1L students see as they get in the elevator to make the trip “back in time.”
