Our Debate Style

Parliamentary Debate differs from other styles as it allows cases about any topic from social justice, pop culture, feminism, philosophy, international relations, and more. It focuses more on ideas and thinking on your feet rather than speaking style or formality when giving speeches. No debate experience is necessary, but we also have members who have debated in high school and can help with transitions from different formats.

Online tournaments

We attend online tournaments with colleges and universities around the Northeast in Parliamentary Debate.

Lifelong Skills

Strengthen your confidence when public speaking and your ability to think quickly and analytically.

Connnections

Make new friends! We're always open to new members and excited to teach you the format no matter when you join.
