The Bankers Association of Trinidad & Tobago (BATT) was a proud sponsor of $15,000 which was awarded to the Hugh Wooding Law School, champions of the Clash of the Debate Titans, 2018, which was hosted by the Trinidad & Tobago Securities Exchange and Commission.
It was an extremely hard-fought competition and there was an exceptionally high standard from seven tertiary institutions: Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business, Cipriani College of Labour and Co-operative Studies, CTS College of Business and Computer Science Limited, Hugh Wooding Law School, Institute of Law and Academic Studies, UWI- Main Campus and UWI-Roytec.
The motion for debate in the final round was “Cryptoassets are self-regulating and therefore do not require formal regulation” which produced a well informed and articulated presentation by the Hugh Wooding Law School and the Institute of Law and Academic Studies.
In the end, the Hugh Wooding Law School, represented by Kyla Richards and Chevy Devonish (lead speakers) and Fanella Francis (alternate speaker) was declared Debate Titans, winning over its opponent Institute of Law and Academic Studies, represented by Corene Procope and Remond Bonne-Smith (lead speaker) and Sydney Riley (alternate speaker).
BATT congratulates all the young and vibrant orators who took part at every stage of the competition.
