The ability to listen to opinions, and arguments put forward by others, respond to them in a structured way, and then develop higher order thinking skills to anticipate lines of argument are lifelong skills, especially for those with political, judicial inclinations.

For others it presents an opportunity to develop impromptu thinking skills, and to feel challenged in presenting arguments in front of others. Please be forewarned, this class requires you to interact, speak, listen, work as a team: a type of intellectual sparring.
