Northeastern University School of Law is pleased to announce the 2008 Daynard Public Interest Visiting Fellows: Michael Ratner and Christina DeConcini ’88. The Daynard Program brings two distinguished practitioners of public interest law to the Northeastern campus each academic year for a three-day visit. The fellows, nationally recognized public interest leaders, serve as role models for students, demonstrating how legal skills can be used effectively and creatively to make the world a better place. The Daynard fellows each deliver an address that focuses on the strategic use of law to promote public interest goals, participate in classes, consult about professional opportunities for students and graduates, and meet individually with interested faculty, administrators and students.
This vibrant program was established in 2004 through the generosity of Professor Richard A. Daynard and his wife, Carol Iskols Daynard. Professor Daynard, an expert on legal approaches to dealing with the epidemics of tobacco- and obesity-related diseases, is president of the law school’s Public Health Advocacy Institute.
