The Long Island Forensic Association and the Catholic Forensic League of Rockville Centre are cocurricular organizations which exist to promote  leadership in high school students through public speaking activities. We seek to teach students the importance of analytical and communication skills. As such, we hold regular speech and debate tournaments throughout the school year.

Membership in both leagues is open to both public and private schools in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

 Competition in these tournaments leads to the State Championship, sponsored by the New York State Forensic League
