As debates and declamations help students to enhance academic research, creativity, expression and communication skills so on the auspicious occasion of National Law Day, Legal Society organized an inter-departmental Debate competition on the recently delivered revolutionary judgment by Hon’ble Supreme Court pronounced on the topic “Ayodhya Verdict”. The competition started by a warm welcome speech from Legal Society member Dr.Sulakshana, Assistant Professor of Law, School of Legal Studies. She articulated about the importance of National Law Day/Constitution Day to students. The National Law Day is celebrated on 26th November every year throughout India especially among the members of the legal fraternity to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. She also expounded the key points of the Ayodhya ruling which formed the basis of the judgment.
18 students of K.R Mangalam University from different streams participated in the competition. The teams were divided into 9 groups. Debaters from each house debated outstandingly in favour and against the motion. The audience commended each one of them as they kept forth their arguments with great confidence and composure. The contestants were judged on content, expression and fluency. The question answer session at the end of the competition saw the debaters rising to the challenge to prove their arguments. It was an erudite experience for both the participants as well as the other students. Students participated with full eagerness and enthusiasm.
