On November 7, 2016, Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch released a statement on the passing of former Attorney General Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as attorney general. “With the passing of Janet Reno, the Department of Justice has lost one of the most effective, decisive and well-respected leaders in its proud history,” Lynch said.
The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy established the Janet Reno Endowment earlier this year to honor and promote her legacy as America’s first woman attorney general and lifelong advocate for children and youth.
