The high school conference is the founding conference for the Newark Debate Academy. This league makes it possible to have a middle grades conference because we draw on the high schoolers to judge our middle grades tournaments. The high school conference also boasts the most national recognition.
The Jersey Urban Debate League in collaboration with Rutgers Newark University has established the Rutgers Newark Debate Team. We've found quick success here by giving our JUDL high school seniors a local college debate team to compete on, but it has also attracted talent from outside of the JUDL high school conference.
