Law Students Work on Key Public Policy Issues

2008 Rappaport Fellows

8/11/2008

Eleven students from Boston-area law schools have been working this summer with top public policymakers and government officials on key issues that affect the citizens of Greater Boston and Massachusetts through the Rappaport Fellows Program.

The Rappaport Fellows Program was established in 2001 through a partnership between the Rappaport Foundation and Suffolk University Law School.  The program is administered through the new Rappaport Center for Law and Public Service at Suffolk University Law School. 

“The Rappaport Fellows represent an amazing cross-section of talent, experience and commitment to public service,” said Susan M. Prosnitz, Esq., executive director of the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Service.  “These fellows are the next generation of government leaders at the state and local level in the Greater Boston area.  It is exciting to work with the fellows and to see the direct influence of their work on the development of important public policy initiatives.”
