    LawSoc Present: Debate Training Launch

    • 24 Sep 2018 to 24 Sep 2018
    • Newman Building, G108

    Event Description

    So you've heard about all this debating craic, seen the house debates and want to have a go at it yourself. Well, we've got you covered. Come to G108 in Newman next week for our first debating training session organised by LawSoc and the L&H. Each week, LawSoc & L&H will be running debating training every Monday at 5pm, which will be perfect for those who are new to debating. Both Training and Development Officers, Edward Leonard from LawSoc and L&H's Jason Coster are always on hand to answer any questions or problems that you might have when it comes to debating (or emotional problems but preferably debating). Don't worry if you haven't a notion about debating. We'll be running through the basics from how to speak, what you need to do in order to do well and all that jazz. And who better to give these trainings than LawSoc's Calem Martin and L&H's Cora Keegan. Calem is a 2nd year Law with Politics student who is straight out of representing LawSoc at the European University Debating Championships. Not only that but he's also been a novice finalist at the Cork IV, Irish Mace and Trinity Open. He also won Leinster Senior Schools in his glory days. When it comes to judging, he's judged the final of both the Ned Stark Memorial Open (a sci-fi debating comp) and also the final of the 2018 L&H Pro-am. Something people don't really know about Calem is that he voted to repeal the 8th, but he doesn't like mentioning it. Cora, like Calem, is also just back from the European University Debating Championships after representing her beloved L&H. Along with breaking at the Cork IV, she has been a semi-finalist at the Edinburgh Cup, won best speaker at the Galway Open where she got to the final, won the Maynooth novice title, a Maynooth Open semi-finalist and finalist at the L&H Earslfort Open this year. She has also chaired the semi-final of the L&H pro-am this year. Cora has vowed to quit smoking this Saturday because in her own words, she is "not a loser" but we'll wait and see. So bop along and make sure to tell your friends, your classmates and anyone you think would like to have a go a debating.
