December 9, 2019 Media Mentions

In an effort to 'move the needle' on diversity in Maine's legal profession, Verrill, and two of the state's other largest law firms, have joined forces with the University of Maine School of Law to launch the Maine Diversity Summer Associate Program. K.C. Jones, Verrill's Managing Partner, explains in an article for Mainebiz, "What makes this program unique is that it is a true collaboration of three firms that have come together with the same goal — to increase diversity in the legal profession in Maine. We are excited to join forces with two of the state’s other largest law firms and the University of Maine School of Law in a program that we hope will have a positive impact on Maine’s legal community. There is still a great deal of progress to be made, and we hope that in the future others in the legal community will join in this effort."
