I have a passion for debate. I joined a debate club at the age of 14, and I loved it! My involvement in debate and speech as a student led me to become interested in the practice of law. I continued to be involved in debate throughout law school. I graduated from law school in 2005 and was called to the bar in 2009.

Pen and paper or a word processing program.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
