This Event already finished.
Right, so you've got the whole speaking thing down (well, kinda) but not fully sure how exactly to prepare your debate? Well, then this weeks training will solve all your problems. LawSoc's Laura Hogan and the L&H's Orla Gaughran are seasoned experts in debating so who better to tell you all that is needed to prepare a debate. They'll tell you how you should plan out your arguments so everything is nice and clear and also how to prepare a debate in 15 minutes as most competitions only give you 15 minutes to prepare your speech (it's not as scary as it sounds). Laura has won both the Maynooth Open and Amsterdam Pro-Am as a speaker, was a finalist at the Cork IV, Trinity Women's and a semi-finalist at the Irish Times Debating Competition. Along with that, she has also judged the final of Irish Times and has chaired the semi-final of the KCL IV. She has also represented LawSoc previously at both the European and World University Debating Championships. Orla has won the both the Cork IV novice final 2017 and National Maidens final 2018, was a finalist at the Earlsfort Open 2018 and the UCD Maidens Mace 2018, was a semi-finalist at the Maynooth Open 2018, Trinity Women's 2018 and a quarter-finalist at the Trinity IV 2018. She also represented the L&H this summer at the European University Debating Championships. So come along to C214 at 5pm on Monday to find out everything there is to know about preparing a debate.
