Rachel Rose, ’10, selected as 2016 Rappaport Fellow in Law and Public Policy

June 10, 2016


The Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy at Boston College Law School is pleased to announce the selection of its 2016 Fellows. This year’s group includes Rachel Rose, ’10, who currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Rose is a J.D. candidate at Boston University School of Law where she is an active member of the OutLaws LGBT association and the Public Interest Program. Before she began her studies in the law, Rose served in the Peace Corps in Kenya and Guyana where she worked in the Deaf Education program. She studied history at Gallaudet University, and worked as a freelance American Sign Language Interpreter in Washington D.C. for eight years. Rose will be interning in the Civil Rights Division at the Office of the Attorney General.

“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,” Rappaport Center Executive Director Elisabeth J. Medvedow said. “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.”

The Rappaport Fellows Program provides selected law school students from Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, Northeastern, New England, Suffolk, and the UMass with opportunities to experience the complexities and rewards of public policy work and public service at the highest levels of state and local government. The program includes coveted summer internships, during which students work with top policy makers and are mentored both by the Center’s Advisory Board and respected civic leaders in the field.

More information about the 2016 Rappaport Fellows can be found on the Rappaport Center Website.
