The Daynard Public Interest Visiting Fellows Program, hosted by Northeastern School of Law, brings distinguished public interest practitioners to campus each academic year for a three-day visit. The fellows serve as role models for students, demonstrating how legal skills can be used effectively and creatively to make the world a better place.
