The Long Island Forensic Association and the Catholic Forensic League of Rockville Centre are cocurricular organizations which exist to promote  leadership in high school students through public speaking activities. We seek to teach students the importance of analytical and communication skills. As such, we hold regular speech and debate tournaments throughout the school year.

Membership in both leagues is open to both public and private schools in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

 Competition in these tournaments leads to the State Championship, sponsored by the New York State Forensic League


The invitation to the Schreiber Tournament is available.

Congress Bills for Schrieber are available.

Tournament Results are available:

HHHE Debate

Sacred Heart Speech

Chaminade Speech


Topics for Nov Debates:

LD: Resolved: In the United States criminal justice system, jury nullification ought to be used in the face of perceived injustice.


PF: Resolved: In response to the current crisis, a government should prioritize the humanitarian needs of refugees over its national interests.


Any school that is interested in joining either or both leagues may contact either Mrs. Lydia Esslinger, President of the Long Island Forensic Association or Bro. John McGrory, President of the Catholic Forensic League of Rockville Centre for information.
