Legal Personhood Selected as Next College Topic

By Carly Watson

The Cross-Examination Debate Association (CEDA) announced that legal personhood has been selected as the 2022-2023 college policy debate topic.

In a vote including CEDA member schools, legal personhood was selected over other possibilities including comity, court reform, and treaties.

Students from MSU Debate will debate the following resolution:

The United States should vest legal rights and/or duties in one or more of the following: artificial intelligence, nature, nonhuman animal species.

While college policy debate has several governing organizations, the CEDA-selected topic will be the topic for the entire year as MSU Debate competes in intercollegiate tournaments.
