“UNIVERSITY DEBATES” – EDITION I
The “UNIVERSITARY DEBATE” competition, run under the aegis of the Law Faculty of “Titu Maiorescu” University, took place between 22.04.2013 – 23.05.2013. This project wanted to be an academic debate platform to which all students of our university have access.
Young people need not only to acquire knowledge, but to know how to put them into practice, to work with specific terms, to acquire new notions and to manifest themselves as valuable intellectuals, responsible citizens and – why not? – Authentic leaders.
The first stages of the competition took place in the TM Club Caffe Cafe, the semifinals – in the M113 amphitheater (with more than 150 students) and the final – in Aula Magna (with more than 250 students and teachers).
In the figures, “University debates” meant: 4 stages of the contest, 16 participating teams, 48 students enrolled in the competition, an average of 192 hours of study for the motions, 1,020 minutes of debates, 2,935 points awarded in total Jury, 7 organizers among the students, a co-ordinator and a winning team.
The video recordings of all the debates, including the final, can be viewed on the dedicated Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVim1L3PwdNrfgytJlYA1sg.
At the first edition, the “University debates” competition reached its objective, which was revealed by the large number of students interested to be present, as participants or as simple spectators, in the halls where the competition stages took place.
The coordinator and the organizing students thank Titu Maiorescu University leadership and the Faculty of Law for their support.
