Thank you for joining us for the KCL Law Society’s Virtual Experience Challenge on Bridgespace. My name is Armand and I am the Debates Officer for the 2020-2021 school year. We are so excited to be connecting virtually. At KCL Law Society, our mission is to organise vocational and career-focused events designed to provide insight and exposure to the legal profession, such as informative workshops or networking drinks, as well as frequent debates and competitions with law firms. These help our members develop the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in the legal profession.
Through this virtual challenge, we aim at allowing you to thoroughly improve at debating. But first, let’s go through some basics about debate and its importance, particularly in the context of the legal profession.
