Justice Karla Gray and Fern Blewett

In Memoriam

Although not a graduate of Montana's law school, Justice Karla Gray was a good friend to the School of Law and a trailblazer in the Montana bar, serving as the first female Chief Justice of the Montana Supreme Court.

Fern Blewett was a longtime friend and donor to the School of Law, including contributing generously to the building campaign and the Blewett Room, which houses the Montana Law Review. Her late husband Alex, son Zander, and grandsons Drew and Anders all graduated from the School of Law, which is now named for Zander. A memorial service for Fern Blewett will be held Friday, March 3, 2017 at 2:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church in Great Falls, MT.
