The Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy at Boston College Law School brings together the region’s top policy makers and thought leaders to engage in dynamic discussions on critical public policy issues.



The Rappaports instilled in us the importance of public service and committing ourselves through our research and public policy work to making life more meaningful for those we serve. I loved the Fellows Program, and it remains a huge part of my law school experience.
