Visit Maine Law and get to know Portland, one of the Top 10 Greenest Cities in America

To know a law school, you have to know the place it calls home. For Maine Law, this means the coastal city of Portland, Maine, one of the best small cities in America.

People here are friendly, hardworking and down to earth. They’re also fiercely committed to protecting the natural environment – the ocean and coastline, lakes, rivers, mountains, forests and farms that define Maine and make it one of the world’s most beautiful places.

We’re proud that in 2012, the readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine picked Portland as one of the Top 10 Greenest Cities in the U.S. Readers judged the cities based on criteria such as cleanliness, pedestrian-friendliness, public transit and public parks. The Portland Farmers’ Market is one of the top draws in the city, and it also made the magazine’s top 10 markets in the country. The year-round market features locally grown foods including vegetables, fruits, herbs, beef, pork, chicken, duck, goat, lamb, milk, cider, cheese, yogurt, eggs, kefir, honey, grains, jams, and fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi, and tempeh.

Here’s what the magazine had to say: “Between the farm-to-table restaurants, homegrown microbrews and all that lobster, you can literally taste the great outdoors here. A few popular restaurants, such as Miyake or 20 Milk Street at the Regency Hotel, even have their own farms. Voters preferred Portland in the summer over any other city in the survey – the ideal time to fish, enjoy the parks, or stroll the Old Port area.”
