Lincoln Academy with Rebecca Curtin: pioneer woman lawyer Leila Robinson Sawtelle
Suffolk University School of Law professor Rebecca Curtin will relay the fascinating story of Leila Robinson Sawtelle, the first woman graduate of the Boston University Law School. When Leila was denied admission to the Massachusetts bar, she successfully fought to change the law, eventually being admitted to practice before the Supreme Court and authoring two books about the law. The Council on Aging provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion. All ages welcome.
