Danielle M. Conway is Dean and Professor of Law at the University of Maine School of Law. She is a leading expert in public procurement law, entrepreneurship, and intellectual property law. Dean Conway has authored numerous books and articles and has delivered several speeches, predominantly focusing on two themes: first, the role of a public law school in the larger community and, second, the imperative to recapture the narrative of the lawyer and the legal profession. Dean Conway has realized the goal of immersing Maine Law into the greater Maine Community by promoting access to affordable legal services in rural parts of the state, creating leadership opportunities for underrepresented students through Maine Law’s PLUS Program, and driving workforce development with new programs, one in Regulatory Compliance and another in Information Privacy & Cyber-Security. She has over twenty-seven years of military service and recently retired in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
