History[edit]

LRP Publications was founded in 1977 by owner and president [1] Kenneth Kahn,[2] a practicing employment law attorney,alumni of Cornell University’s [3]” LRP Publications (then known as Labor Relations Press) published case reporters for the legal profession in the United States.

In September 2013, Kahn was honored with the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County’s Economic Development Leadership Award for his instrumental role in launching “Behind the Gates” and for initiating a second new project while serving as the co‐chair of the Branding and Marketing Education Taskforce. Kahn is credited with creating the first ever comprehensive marketing strategy of its kind not only in Palm Beach County but in the state of Florida. With the creation of a new website and brochures, CEOs new to the area are now able to easily navigate school options for their children in elementary, middle and high schools.

Kahn has received numerous honors, including Cornell University’s Groat Alumni Award, Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce’s Community Leader of the Year Award, and the Sun Sentinel Co.’s Excalibur Award. He is civically involved on several boards including Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations and Max Planck Florida Foundation. Kahn also serves on the executive committee of the Education Commission of Palm Beach County, Kravis Center Corporate Partners, Business Development Board of Palm Beach County and Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the Florida Council of 100.

Kahn was born in Sioux City, Iowa and raised in New York City. Graduating from Cornell University with his Bachelor’s degree in 1969, he obtained his law degree from Harvard Law School. Kahn has five children and currently resides in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida with his wife and two daughters.
