Attendees will earn three hours of professional development credit within the CDL system, and three hours of CPDUs.

In this seminar we will get back to the element of refutation, the core of debate, in the context of Topicality (violations against Port Security and Public Service Employment) and the States Counterplan, using the Federalism Disadvantage as a net benefit. These are new arguments that all coaches should become very well familiar with, and thus all CMSDL coaches can benefit.
