The Penn Law Public Speaking Society has helped me overcome any trepidation regarding public speaking as well as develop the necessary framework to be an effective speaker. These lessons have proven to be extremely helpful in class, and more importantly, have a great professional benefit. During interviews, employers almost always ask me about the Penn Law Public Speaking Society. Effective oral communication is one of the most important skills an attorney needs. Through my involvement in the Public Speaking Society, I have the unique opportunity to showcase the skills I have developed.
