Ibrahim Farris
Lawyer, Palestine

I was wrong when I thought that two weeks at CILS were too short to get to know everyone well. However, not only did I get to know everyone, I also learned from everyone. Our professors were at a hight knowledge level.... and came down to our level of comprehension and lifted us to their level of understanding. As for my colleagues, we worked as an intellectual family.
