Center for Law and the Public’s Health


Law has played a key role in mitigating the harmful health effects of tobacco use. For example, state and local indoor smoking bans have been critical in reducing exposure to secondhand smoke. Litigation against tobacco manufacturers has led to landmark decisions with far-reaching public health implications. Center faculty study and assess the use of law as a tool to promote these and other tobacco control efforts.
