2018 MAPIL Auction raises over $21,000 for public interest fellowships

The Maine Association for Public Interest Law (MAPIL), a student group at the University of Maine School of Law, raised over $21,000 at its annual auction on April 11-12, 2018. Proceeds support the award of paid fellowships that allow students to spend summers providing legal services to low-income families, veterans, immigrants, and others in need of legal aid.

The silent and live auctions were held on April 12 at Mariner’s Church Banquet Center in the Old Port District. (The online auction was held on April 11.) This popular spring event brings together alumni, faculty, staff, students, and other friends of the Maine Law community. Professors Anthony Moffa and Jeff Maine served as the auctioneers at the event.

This year MAPIL fellowships will help fund summer positions for Maine Law students working in locations as far away as Hawaii, Chicago, and New York City – and as close as Portland and Augusta. A full list of the 2018 summer fellowships is available on the Maine Law website.
