The 2021 Competition was held remotely during the weekends of 13-14 March, and 20 March.
American University Washington College of Law
Participating in the Clara Barton was an amazing experience. They really mean it when they say to take the law out of the books. I’ve discussed these issues in my classes, but it was a completely different (and incredibly valuable) experience to present, debate, and discuss these issues in real-world settings. I learned so much – not just from my own preparation, but from the other teams, judges, coaches, and speakers. If you’re considering participating in the Clara Barton – do it!
University of Minnesota School of Law
It was an absolute honor to represent my school at the Clara Barton Competition. I had an incredible experience and learned so much from my peers during the weekend.”
This area of the law has not been my focus in law school, nonetheless, the ability to negotiate effectively, think on my feet and collaborate with my team in high-stress situations are all skills that will serve me well in any practice. I cannot understate the importance of taking advantage of every opportunity like this to develop skills and expand your horizons.
