"Dr. Ebadi’s plenary debate was one of the highlights of the three days and her words influenced everyone in the room – and will continue to spark debate for a long time to come. It was an honor to have her on the stage."
"I would like to thank Dr. Ebadi for traveling to our corner of the world to deliver Sunday’s commencement address. Her words were stirring. I can’t imagine anything more important for our graduates to hear. And, of course, her work is an inspiration to lawyers all around the world. I will treasure our meeting always, and continue to pray that conditions in her country move in the direction for which she is toiling so long and hard. Again, on behalf of everyone here at the University of Connecticut School of Law, a thousand times thank you."
"Her visit here was a great success. Even speaking through an interpreter, she was most accessible and engaging. The students were thrilled to have someone of her stature here. Thanks for your help in setting it up."
"Everything went very well. She spoke superbly and we had a great turnout from the community and school. She was very well received by the audience, graciously took questions, and then stayed until 9:30 pm signing books. Thanks for all of your work. This was a good success!"
