Appalachian School of Law to Host Virginia Gubernatorial Debate
Appalachian School of Law is pleased to announce that it will host a debate between Virginia gubernatorial candidates Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin on ASL’s campus in Grundy, Virginia on September 16, 2021. Both campaigns have confirmed their participation in this debate, which will take place in ASL’s moot courtroom. We expect this important event to be live-streamed online and broadcast on news networks.
Debates have taken place in Southwest Virginia on several occasions, providing the leading gubernatorial candidates with an opportunity to address issues common to all Virginians and those unique to the Southwest region — a special and important opportunity for our fellow citizens.
Furthermore, holding the debate at a law school frames the aspirations of all Virginia voters to support leaders who promote the rule of law in the Commonwealth.
