    LawSoc Present: James Joyce Maidens Training Workshop

    • 26 Sep 2018 to 26 Sep 2018
    • Newman Building, G108

    Event Description

    James Joyce Maidens 2018 is nearly upon us. This is a competition for first time college debaters in UCD, run jointly by Lawsoc and the L&H. If you are worried that because you've never debated before you won't know what to do, well we've got you covered with not just one, but two training workshops. On Wednesday at 5pm, come along to G108 in Newman, where LawSoc's very own Leon Langdon and last years Maidens Mace Champion, Mark Smyth, will be there to tell you all you need to know about debating. From how to debate to the Maidens competition itself. The lads are no strangers to Maidens as both Leon and Mark have conveyed the competition in 2017 and 2018 respectively. If that's not impressive enough, both of them are straight back from representing LawSoc at the European University Debating Championships in Serbia. These workshops will teach you all you need to know about how to do well in Maidens so tell your friends and come along. Mark and Des are always on hand to answer questions that you might have so don't be afraid to ask. There will also be training sessions held every Monday at 5pm, organised by LawSoc's Edward Leonard and L&H's Jason Coster, throughout the competition so you can learn more and more as you go on.
