In a first in the department, a mock Parliamentary Debate session was organised in the University Institute of Legal Studies. The initiative has been welcomed as being instrumental for the students pursuing law.
The speakers for the mock PD were invited from Punjab Engineering College’s Debating Society, S.A.A.S.C. (Speakers Association and Study Circle). The learned speakers held a training session and appraised the students regarding the technicalities of parliamentary debating and demonstrated a mind boggling mock Parliamentary Debate. By the end of the session, the audience was well-equipped with the various nuances of parliamentary debating.
This move was taken to discover the untapped potential of the students of UILS and also to encourage participation of students in various prestigious regional and national level Parliamentary Debate Competitions.
This initiative taken by Nikhilesh Verma, a third year student of UILS who is standing for the post of Department Representative as an independent candidate, has enthused the debating spirit among the students of UILS.
The need of the hour is to raise the standards of UILS, both on the academic and co-curricular front. And Nikhilesh, by his laudable effort, has just proven that this vision can be achieved through zealous students willing to bring in positive and constructive policy changes to lead to the betterment of the department and take it to the zenith of it’s achievements.
