CBASS students to learn the art of Public Speaking

Published: Tuesday 24 March 2015

Over the next few months, CBASS students will embark on a new short course, developed with the assistance of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and the Brunel Law (student) Society. The new course proved extremely popular with students, with all places being booked out in a matter of hours. 

Over 100 students, split into two teams, will learn a range of debating, oral argumentation and public speaking skills in a series of lectures hosted by Brunel academics and legal professionals, including renowned legal speaker Alastair Hodge, Brunel educational expert John Francis and the College’s Dean, Professor Zahir Irani. Brunel Law School debating finalists will also give their input.

The final session will see students compete with each other in a public debating competition where they will put their full range of new skills to the test.​

The short course is coordinated by the College’s Associate Dean (Student Welfare), Dr Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, and is part of a series of cross-disciplinary initiatives designed to allow students from across CBASS to work together, enriching their student experience.
