Each month, NYC students across all grade levels engage in debate, discussion, research and critical inquiry of different legal topics.
Last month our law debate topic was on Attorney Client Privilege. "Resolved: In the United States criminal justice system, truth-seeking ought to take precedence over attorney-client privilege." Next month our Public Forum Debate Topic Area is on the Supreme Court and Individual Rights. "Resolved: The Supreme Court rightly decided the Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act violated the Constitution." Our middle school and high school debaters will be researching, writing, and debating that topic for the next two months. And thank you to all our partners from the legal and debate communities for providing so many resources and experts on these topics!
