Model Arab League

 
Model Arab League of Cal State LA

     The Model Arab League (MAL) is much like the Model United Nations (MUN) in that students act as delegates of their respective nations and engage in dialogue concerning social, economic, political, cultural and various other affairs.  MAL is unique because it strictly deals with Middle Eastern and other Arabic speaking states.
     While "student diplomats" attempt to solve problems facing leaders of the Arab world, they gain valuable leadership training and hone their skills in public speaking, writing, debating and critical thinking.  The MAL Club is open to students from all majors.  We welcome you to join us and participate in all future simulations.
