Forensics? What is that?

"Forensics" is a word rooted in the Western world's classical experience.  The Greeks organized contests for speakers that developed and recognized the abilities their society felt central to democracy.  These exercises acquired the title "forensics," derived from the Latin term for ensis which is closely related to forum.  Because the training in this skill of public advocacy, including the development of evidence, found one of its important venues in the law courts, the term "forensic" has also become associated with the art and science of legal evidence and argument.  However our Forensics team is a group of collective indiviuals who perform at competitions in many different events.
