NEW YORK UNIVERSITY  |  CEDA Debate

HISTORY


Founded in 2001, the International Public Policy Forum (IPPF) is the only contest that gives high school students globally the opportunity to engage in written and oral debates on issues of public policy involving on average over 200 high schools in 20 countries and over  800 students each yr.


The IPPF is administered by the Brewer Foundation and New York University, with the NYU CEDA team serving as judges, school ambassadors, and facilitators for the event.   With extensive help of the NYU team and the leadership of Brewer Attorneys LLC, the IPPF is available to any and all public and private high schools across the globe for FREE.


ABOUT BREWER ATTORNEYS


The Brewer firm and managing partner Bill Brewer were recently recognized by 2020 Best Lawyers in America in the area of Commercial Litigation. Both our Dallas and New York offices received special honors. The Best Lawyers in America recognition is based on interviews with corporate clients and peer evaluations, making it one of the most prestigious honors in the profession.  Brewer takes on tough cases from Voting Rights Act to the NRA's 1st Amendment matters.  


The firm's commitment to community service extends far beyond IPPF.  The Brewer Storefront recently prevailed in several Voting Rights Act cases. As a result, the Richardson Independent School District adopted a new electoral system and elected its first candidate of color under that framework.  The Foundation also runs the Future Leaders Program [FLP], a public-private partnership that lights a path to college for deserving students from the Dallas Independent School District awarding scholarships to Pomona College, NYU and Amherst to name a few.  30 FLP scholars graduated in 2019.
