Leinster Schools Wildcard Round

  • Graduate Memorial Building Trinity College Dublin (map)

Want to learn more about how debates are judged? Now’s your chance- Leinster Schools’ round is happening next week, on 12th of November!

Leinster Schools is a year-long debating competition for secondary school students, with rounds being held in the GMB on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm. While you guys aren’t able to speak in this competition, you can certainly still get involved, as all these debates are judged by college students!

It’s a great opportunity for anyone interested in debating, as judging Leinster Schools will help you understand what makes a good speech and how judges think. No prior debating/judging knowledge is needed, as we’ll pair you with experienced Hist members, so it’s a great way to learn the basics or further develop your skills!

If you’ve any questions or want to know more, you can ask our Librarian, Laura Crean (
