· Linda Butterworth-Till of North Road, a former Carlisle School Committee member and a recent graduate of Northeastern University Law School was asked by the Mosquito to tell us about her experiences as a student of law. "I loved being a special education teacher but had
always said someday I wanted to be a lawyer. So in the early nineties I started taking paralegal courses at Middlesex Community College to see if I really liked it. I did and so in the fall of 1998 I started at Northeastern University School of Law. I chose NUSL because of its co-op program. I didn't want to have to wait three full years before seeing whether I was going to be any good at this second street career. By the end of our three years NUSL students have spent four quarters or one entire year doing co-ops. I interned for Superior Court Judge John Cratsley, worked for two attorneys specializing in family law and domestic violence (one at Greater Boston Legal Services and one in private practice) and prosecuted batterers in the Domestic Violence Section of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C. I will take the bar exam in February 2002 and hope to do family law with an emphasis on Domestic Violence."
