There are 2 comments on Leonard Glantz Retires, Will Become Professor Emeritus of Health Law

  1. Leonard is one of two faculty members whose tenure with the School predates mine (the other is George Annas). In those 38 years he and I have had a number of sharp and public disagreements, always over what each of us saw as matters of principle. At no time has the disagreement ever been personal and it never carried over to our private relationship, which has always been extremely friendly and collegial. I will genuinely miss the sparring. It always challenged me and more importantly, challenged my beliefs. Moreover we more often than not agreed with each other, despite our mutual protestations that this embarrassed each of us. Speaking for myself (since I would never presume to speak for Leonard), what appeared on the surface as an oil and water combination was on my part a relationship of deep intellectual respect and no small amount of affection.
    As a founding faculty member he put his stamp the School in the best possible way, by making adherence to the highest principles an accepted way of going about our work. Enjoy your new status, Leonard. You’ve earned it many times over.

  2. The lectures of Leonard Glantz, George Annas and Michael Grodin were the very reason I stayed an additional year at the School of Public Health in order to earn the equivalent of a Health Law concentration during my time at BUSPH.
    Best wishes to Professor Glantz on his retirement.
