Approximately 200 students walked across the stage today at Albany Law School's 162 Commencement, held at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

Nina Totenberg, legal affairs correspondent for NPR programs such as All Things Considered, Morning Edition and Weekend Edition, delivered the keynote address to a packed and elated crowd comprised of the Class of 2013, Albany Law faculty and staff, and family and friends.

"Think about the long haul: what you can do, what you can be, and what matters most," advised Totenberg, who went on to cite examples from the history of law, as well as more contemporary political events.

Totenberg and Justice Karen Peters of the Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, received honorary doctorates at the ceremony, and New York State Bar Association President Seymour James, Jr., received the Dean's Medal.
