They both changed the direction of their lives when they decided to attend law school. Andrea Defusco-Sullivan, host of American History Roundtable is joined by Former Massachusetts State Police Officer Al Puller and second year law student Kellie Tiller on why they chose to go to law school and how it has changed the course of their lives. Puller is now a practicing criminal lawyer and an Assistant Professor at the Massachusetts School of Law.
