Greenhill’s future lawyers
Students from The Greenhill School joined other Texas high school debate teams, competing in the second annual Old Parkland Debate Tournament. In the two-day, six-round tournament, they went up against debate teams from five countries, including Australia, Canada, England and Mexico.
Topics ranged from human rights to income disparities to natural resources. In the final round, the students took on the weighty assertion, “When in conflict, the protection of global human rights ought to be valued above the respect of national sovereignty.”
Team England won the championship round, defeating Team Australia. Judges included Dallas attorney Kim Askew, State Representative Dan Branch and Civil District Court Judge Craig Smith.
Also competing from Dallas was a team from Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet.
