PORTLAND, Maine – Twenty students at the University of Maine School of Law are working as fellows this summer in an array of public interest jobs.

The fellowships are supported financially by the annual spring auction of the Maine Association for Public Interest Law (MAPIL), Law School funds and donations to Maine Law from alumni and friends.
