Celebrate Richard Daynard’s 50th Anniversary at Northeastern Law

On Thursday, November 5, the Northeastern community gathered (in-person and online) to celebrate the 50-year career of Professor Richard Daynard, a pioneer and international leader in establishing the legal responsibility of the tobacco industry for tobacco-induced addiction, disease and death. As founder and president of the Public Health Advocacy Institute, he continues to champion, advocate and litigate to ensure the health and well-being of us all.
