MAPIL Online Auction

The Maine Association of Public Interest Law (MAPIL) will be holding its annual online auction on Wednesday, March 26. The event will begin at 9:00am and continue until 3:00pm. The highest bid will be updated every quarter hour.

A Silent Auction will be hosted from 4:30pm to 5:45pm on Friday, March 28 at the University of Maine School of Law, 246 Deering Ave., Portland. The evening will end with a Live Auction held in the Moot Court Room that will begin at 5:45pm.

This year's auction is sponsored by the University of Maine School of Law, Baker Newman Noyes, Verrill Dana, and The Maine Real Estate Network.

The proceeds of the auction will fund summer fellowships, enabling law students to do important public interest legal work in the community. In the past, organizations such as the Maine Center for Deafness, the Maine Civil Liberties Union, the Volunteer Lawyers Project, and countless individuals with insufficient resources to address their legal problems have benefited from the program.
