Law, Life,  and Leadership - one of four Rockefeller Center Student Discussion Groups - was happy to host Dartmouth Alum Robert Burka '67 at this week's dinner discussion.

Burka's discussion forced the participants to examine many facets of the current political situation in America and recognize the parallels that can be drawn between this and previous eras in American history. As noted by a student attending the discussion, "By recognizing these similarities, we can try to learn from our past mistakes and better handle issues such as whether senior government officials are obligated to criticize the administration's policies in a time of war, be it the war against terror or our involvement in the situation in Libya." 

You can read more about the discussion in this article in The Dartmouth, published on April 12, 2011.  This spring, discussion groups run until the week of May 23, 2011.
