"The skills I learned from competing in the IPPF have been directly applicable to my experiences in law school. As I've started representing clients through clinical work, I find myself drawing on many of the same things I learned in the IPPF -- how to work collaboratively with a team; how to synthesize complex concepts in written and oral presentations; and how to confidently answer judges' questions on your feet. Competing in the IPPF was a fantastic learning experience and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it to all high school students."
