The Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy at Boston College Law School officially announced the 2018 roster of Rappaport Fellows, twelve law students from Greater Boston schools with a deep passion for public policy. Three Boston College Law students are among the fellows: Robyn Casper ’20, Lauren Koster ’19, and Meg Ziegler ’20.

The Rappaport Fellowship awards students the opportunity to explore and expand on their varying interests in public policy by spending their summers working in state and local government on policy matters. The students work with top policy makers and are mentored by Rappaport Center Advisory Board members, prior Rappaport fellows, and notable civic leaders in the public service sector.

The fellows were selected this year from a competitive applicant pool of students from BC Law, Boston University School of Law, Harvard Law School, Northeastern University School of Law, Suffolk University Law School, New England School of Law, and University of Massachusetts School of Law.

“I’m always delighted when the new cohort of fellows is selected,” said Lissy Medvedow, Rappaport Center executive director. “They exude enthusiasm and passion for public policy and public service. I look forward to channeling their energies to become change agents for the social good.”

The remaining 2018 Rappaport Fellows are as follows: Michael Anderson, Suffolk; Samuel Burgess, BU; Garrett Casey, Harvard; Anna Madrishin, New England; Siri Nelson, Northeastern; Daniel Ordorica, BU; Jennifer Peterson, Suffolk; Cloe Pippin, BU; and Kayla Venckauskas, UMass.
