Law-Related Named Lectures

The Rockefeller Center hosts a range of law-related named lectures each year, particularly the Aaron, Thurlow Gordon, Timbers, and Volk Lectures, often in collaboration with the Dartmouth Lawyers Association and the Steering Committee of the Dartmouth Legal Studies Faculty Group. The Center also hosts an annual Constitution Day celebration in the Fall Term and an annual Law Day celebration in the Spring Term, the latter of which is generously supported by the Dartmouth Lawyers Association.
