Congratulations to our Law & Justice Debate Team!

On Saturday, April 12th, the Law and Justice Debate Team hosted the first South Jersey Criminal Justice Debate Invitational. Over 30 students, representing 16 teams from six colleges and universities participated in multiple rounds of debates throughout the day. Teams from Rowan, Temple, Rutgers University-Camden, Cumberland County College, Camden County College and Wilmington University participated. The tournament, thanks to the enormous effort put forth by our team, was a huge success. All the participants came well prepared and offered up an impressive display of debating prowess. In the end, Rowan’s team of six members performed well, earning 2nd place in the overall college/university rankings. One of our teams tied for 3rd in the team competition and we had three members in the top five in the individual competition. All around a successful event for all teams!
