The University of Maine School of Law on Saturday awarded law degrees to 77 students and post-graduate law degrees to three students at a ceremony at Merrill Auditorium in Portland.

Keynote speaker Tom Allen, a former six-term congressman from Maine, encouraged the graduates to think about the legacies they will leave in the world, based on virtues such as kindness, courage, honesty, and the depth of their personal and professional relationships.

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills received the 2015 L. Kinvin Wroth Award, named after a former dean at the school. The award honors a Maine Law graduate who has achieved distinction in his or her career by contributing as a leader, locally, nationally or globally. Mills, a 1976 graduate of Maine Law, is the state’s first woman attorney general.
