Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with University of Maine School of Law and University of Maine School of Law Foundation in the search for a Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement.

Reporting to the Chief Development Officer, the Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Engagement will develop, market, and manage targeted campaigns for the Annual Fund. The Director will lead the implementation of new campaigns and fund strategies for Annual Giving initiatives including assisting with the design, implementation, and ongoing management of specialized campaigns that include, but are not limited to, Days of Giving, student campaigns, and Maine Law specific funds.

By design, University of Maine School of Law is, and always has been, one of the smallest law schools in the country. With an excellent student to faculty ratio, Maine Law takes pride in providing the personal attention that few law schools can match, a focus on hands-on learning, and a world-class faculty. Maine Law’s mission is to advance justice and leadership in a changing world. It provides an exceptional, inclusive, and student-centered legal education and serves the local and global communities through teaching, scholarship, and public service. Maine Law pursues its mission through the implementation of its values by an engaged faculty and staff who encourage the advancement of justice for all members of society, promote a system of just laws, and provide students with the knowledge, ethical framework, and skills needed for a career in the law.

Maine Law benefits from the robust collaboration with other graduate programs within the university through the Graduate and Professional Center. Maine Law’s new home in the beautiful coastal city of Portland, Maine, is in the heart of Portland’s Old Port, at 300 Fore Street, just two hours from Boston. The new location, in the newly renovated Maine Center, is within walking distance of many law firms and both the Federal and State courts. Six floors, many with views of Portland Harbor, provide multiple classrooms, conference, and innovation spaces, as well as student study spaces that include individualized focus study spaces and multiple seminar-style classrooms all equipped with modern technology.

Maine Law faculty place teaching as their priority. Superb faculty mentoring and out-of-class contributions to student educational and professional development are as much a part of the curriculum as the actual classes themselves. Members of Maine Law faculty participate in nationally and internationally recognized scholarship. Law faculty also act as consultants to the federal courts, to Maine’s Supreme Judicial Court, to the Governor, and various legislative committees, and to the national and state bar associations.

University of Maine School of Law works closely with its partner—the University of Maine School of Law Foundation Board to fulfill its educational and professional mission. It is the mission of the University of Maine School of Law Foundation to raise, manage, and distribute funds for the support and improvement of Maine Law and the education that it provides. The Foundation was established in 2001 and is responsible for the building of an endowment and in addressing long-term academic and financial priorities at the Law School.

Maine Law is committed to equity in legal education and the legal profession. Its 2023 first year class of 90 students is comprised of 19% first-generation students, 54% women, 18% racially diverse, and ages 20-56 (average age 26). University of Maine School of Law is committed to equity in legal education and the legal profession.
