Congratulations to Kate Kane and Alison Balmer of Duncanrig Secondary School in East Kilbride who won Scullion LAW's Annual Debating Cup last week. For the last 8 years Scullion LAW has been working in partnership with local schools to organise an annual debating competition which has been a huge success, with many of the pupils going on to carry out work experience in Scullion LAW's offices in Glasgow and Hamilton.
The two schools who made it to the final of the competition, Holy Cross and Duncanrig Secondary, were debating the motion: "This House believes that humans are too dependent on computers".
Ten schools from across Lanarkshire signed up for the Cup, debating topics such as penalising sporting teams for poor behaviour of their fans; whether Scottish university students should be required to work in their country of origin for a number of years after graduation; and the banning of security cameras as an invasion of privacy.
For the last 8 years award-winning law firm Scullion LAW has been working in partnership with local schools to organise an annual debating competition. The firm does this to inspire pupils from the local area – encouraging them to grow in confidence, form opinions, and argue their points in a safe environment.
