FAQS

HOW OFTEN DOES UCD LITERARY AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY MEET?

The L&H formally meets every Wednesday for a House Debate. Here we invite speakers to debate the most important issues of the day. We also run college and schools debating competitions on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday with Friday reserved for debate trainings. Inter Varsity competitions take place on the weekends and Socials happen all through the week!

WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY? DO I HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO DEBATE?

Come to one of our events! If you feel a little lost that's alright - try to find someone with a navy jumper and tell them you are new - they'll help you out from there! 

You don't have to know how to debate! Some of the most active members of the L&H don't take part in debating - though, if you are interested, we train you up!

HOW DO I SIGN UP?

We take sign ups at all of our events throughout the year, all we need is your student number. We have stands on Freshers week in Semester 1 and Refreshers day in Semester 2. 

If you want to sign up for competitions see our LinkTree for sign up forms.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

Every week we are always doing some kind of debating activity - whether that be for college students or school students. If you are interested in helping us to judge schools debates or take part in college debating then you can contact us! Otherwise, feel free to come to our events!
