Discussion With Two People


The College Public Forum Debate League (CPFL) releases two topics per season—typically one domestic and one international, though not necessarily in that order.

The fall topic is used for all CPFL tournaments and divisions from September through December of the competitive season, followed by the spring topic from January through May. Exact wording of the resolution is released in advance, as well as a free Starter Packet with sample cases and additional evidence on each side of the topic.
