Maine is changing,

so must we

Maine faces profound demographic shifts, marked by increasing racial, ethnic, and gender diversity. As the faces of our communities change, so too must the institutions that serve them, including the legal profession.

Diverse perspectives enrich decision-making, enhance innovation, and promote equity. By championing diversity in the legal profession, we're not just shaping the future of Maine's legal landscape; we're fostering a more inclusive, equitable society where everyone, regardless of background, can thrive.

The Alpha Legal Foundation will cultivate and support the next generation of “firsts” while also ensuring that those firsts are not Maine’s last.
