Three 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 are Stephanie Johnson ’18, Amar Patel ’18, and Rodline Louijeune ’17. Johnson and Patel, both first-year students, are working this summer at the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the City of Boston’s Office of Innovation and Technology, respectively. Louijeune, a second-year student, is interning at the State Treasurer’s Office.
“This year’s 2016 Rappaport Fellows are an extraordinary group of law students who exude passion and commitment to bettering communities, the environment, education, access to justice, women’s rights, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and the world,” said Rappaport Center Executive Director Elisabeth J. Medvedow. “The Rappaport Fellowship affords them opportunities to gain hands-on experience in government, benefit from mentors, and learn how law and public policy are used to effect change for the social good.”
