New Legal Debate Blog

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have started a Legal Debate blog -- http://legaldebate.blogspot.com

 

The blog intends to provide a forum for high school debaters debating this year's Civil Liberties topic to engage in discussions with law professors about the topic. Many of the arguments that reoccur year after year in the debate community are areas where law professors have special expertise: federalism, presidential powers, separation of powers, the hollow hope, critical legal studies, etc.

 

My hope is that this forum functions as a site for clarification of debaters' questions about the law, as well as a site for argument innovation.

 

Initially, I plan to solicit topic-related questions from high school debaters (and coaches). I will locate a law professor with some expertise on the question and will post his or her response on this site. From time to time, I may post my own thoughts on the topic as well (I teach at the University of Miami Law School).

 

Best wishes,

Lindsay Harrison

That hollow hope essay is 100% right on -- and provides me with some analytical ammo for the round.

 

Thanks a bunch!
