Ensuring Equal Access to Justice in Maine’s Rural Communities

April 26, 2019, 8:00 AM


A two-day symposium presented in partnership between Colby College and the University of Maine School of Law

Maine is over 60% rural, and its rural communities are facing a well-documented lawyer shortage. While some work is underway to address this vexing problem, the absence of legal representation remains a constant challenge to the quality of life experienced by all communities. To respond, we will engage in a holistic discussion about access to services in rural areas, including civil legal and healthcare services as well as criminal law reform.

This symposium runs 8:00 a.m – 6:30 p.m., Friday and 9:00 – noon, Saturday. Attendance is free, but advance registration is required. Please register by April 19, 2019. Click for registration and additional information.
