Honoring the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy's Beloved Founder Jerome Lyle Rappaport
With deep sadness, we want to share that the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy's beloved founder, Jerome "Jerry" Lyle Rappaport, passed away in the early morning of December 6, 2021, at the age of 94. Jerry inspired, encouraged, and provided opportunities for hundreds of law and graduate students to consider public service a possibility for their future. The Center will carry on Jerry’s vision and legacy with great pride and fervor. We will miss him tremendously.
