IFL Virtual Series Session 6: How-To Parliament: An Introduction to the Institute for Future Legislators

Thursday August 13, 2020
12:30 PM - 2:00 PM


Join us for an engaging and interactive session that brings together Institute for Future Legislators alumni and anyone interested in learning more about the program.

Past IFL alumni and instructors will share insights from their time in the program, how they’ve put their training practice since the institute, and advice for anyone interested in the program or politics in general. Participants will then get a chance to participate in one of our signature IFL political simulations, where they will experience first-hand some of the challenges, trade-offs, and opportunities that come along with public office.
