PORTLAND, Maine – Alison Beyea, the Admissions Director at the University of Maine School of Law since 2012, is leaving the Law School this spring to become the new executive director at the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine.
Beyea, who also serves as Adjunct Professor of Juvenile Law, is a 1997 graduate of Maine Law. Prior to joining the Law School, Beyea was the Senior Attorney for the Justice Policy Group at the Muskie School of Public Service. She is a former staff attorney at Pine Tree Legal Assistance, and in 2003 she co-founded KIDS Legal, a statewide legal assistance program that helps low-income children in Maine.
“We are thrilled to welcome Alison Beyea to the ACLU of Maine team,” Susan Peck, president of the ACLU of Maine board of directors, told the Bangor Daily News. “Throughout her impressive career, Alison has demonstrated a dedication to key civil liberties issues, including criminal justice reform, children’s rights and women’s rights. She is the perfect fit to lead the organization forward.”
