A new state report found that Maine is facing a shortage of lawyers in its most rural areas. It said nearly all of Maine's lawyers listed as private practitioners under the age of 40 reside and/or practice in Cumberland County, with with few or even none in rural counties like Piscatquis, Washington, Somerset, Knox and Franklin. To combat the dwindling numbers of attorneys, the report suggested that the state should fund incentive programs to encourage lawyers to move to rural areas.
Should the state fund new incentives to attract lawyers to rural areas?
