Welcome to Liverpool Debating Union, the debating society for all the universities in Liverpool. Join to get involved in the society and our events. 

Everyone is welcome no matter what your experience level, we
promise there's a friendly, inclusive atmosphere! 

We hold training sessions each week, as well as frequent
public debates and weekly opportunities to attend competitions throughout the


Tuesdays 5:30pm.
This is geared towards total beginners, with
the focus on getting you comfortable with public speaking and debating. These
sessions will normally start with a debating game, followed by a short debate
and feedback on how to improve. (see Facebook page for details for information
on location, and exact content each week)


Thursdays 5:30pm.
This is aimed at teaching those who want to
attend competitions against other universities to win debates and will be more
competitive and challenging than Tuesday training.  You are very welcome
to attend both sessions, or whichever session is more convenient for you. We
recommend that total beginners come to Tuesday training first to get a feel for
public speaking and the society as a whole.
