Debater of the Year Competition - May 18, 2019

In May, we had held our Debater of the Year competition with four student finalists who argued about first amendment rights as they relate to Union dues.

Check out the photos!

Janic, Brianna, Ramon, and Elizette were terrific as they presented their oral arguments in front of our VIP judging panel, NJ Supreme Court Justice Anne Patterson, Charles Hayden Foundation Executive Director Ken Merin, and U.S. District Court Law Clerk Marquis A. Whitney. The panel declared Janic as the winner! We are so proud of all of our students and grateful to our panel and to our volunteers who help make our debate program a success.
