Four Boston College Law School students are among twelve area law school students to win prestigious summer internships in public service from the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy. The fellows program provides opportunities in public policy at the highest levels of state and local government in Massachusetts.
The BC Law awardees, all 1Ls, are Amy-Lee Goodman, Annie Lee, Hannah Jellinek, and Andrew Yarrows. Goodman will intern at the Governor’s Office of Legal Counsel and Lee will spend her summer at the Youth Advocacy Division of the Committee for Public Counsel Services. Jellinek will be working at the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and Yarrows for state Senator Jamie Eldridge ’00.
The fellows from BC Law are part of a distinguished group of fellows who are students at Boston, Suffolk, and Northeastern university law schools, and the University of Massachusetts School of Law. The range of interests among all twelve fellows is broad and deep. See the full list
“This year’s 2017 Rappaport Fellows are an exemplary class of aspiring policy makers. They already have proven track records pursuing their interests in health care, LGBT and women’s issues, criminal and social justice, human and immigrant rights, crime prevention, voting rights, and education,” said Rappaport Center Executive Director Elisabeth J. Medvedow. “As Rappaport Fellows they will gain real-world experience, learn from knowledgeable mentors, and achieve an understanding of how law and public policy can effect the social good.”
