The University of Maine School of Law has joined with the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at UMaine-Orono, the Muskie School of Public Service at USM, and the Maine Development Foundation in launching a nonpartisan public policy research initiative in Augusta. This collaborative effort combines our interdisciplinary expertise and brings the research capacity and resources of the University System to policy-makers in Maine. The 2008 Legislative Mini-Forums for legislators represented the first program outreach of this collaborative initiative. These sessions, held under the auspices of the Legislative Council, were designed specifically for legislators to discuss critical issues in an open, participatory environment.
