The Western Australian Debating League is the leading debating organisation in Western Australia, and the sole affiliate of the Australian Debating Federation in the state. We believe that debating is a fundamental life skill, and we are dedicated to improving the standards of debate amongst high school students in Western Australia.

WADL runs the largest high school debating competition in Western Australia, as well as other competitions and programs. WADL is also responsible for selecting the West Australian State Debating Team, which represents WA at the National Schools Debating Championship every year.
