Team Nevis left the island today to participate in the competition and will be debating in the semi – finals (night 3) (debate 4) on Saturday 2nd March, 2019. The moot for that debate is “The lack of trust in our own people is the main reason why the majority of CARICOM states are yet to adopt the Caribbean Court of Justice as their final court of appeal.”
The winner of night 3 – debate 4 will compete in the finals on Sunday 3rd March, 2019. The moot for that debate is “Caribbean countries have not done enough to afford the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) community the same legal rights and protections as other citizens.”
Team Nevis returns on Monday 4th March, 2019.
