    Brandeis Academic Debate and Speech Society 


    About the Club
    The Brandeis Academic Debate and Speech Society is an association of people with a common interest in a formal contest of wit, rhetoric, and public speaking. The purpose of the Society is two-fold. First, it seeks to provide an opportunity for its members to learn, develop, and practice these skills and techniques with other members of the Society, and compete within any debate league it chooses to participate. The Society is a member of, but is not limited to, the American Parliamentary Debate Association. In addition, it will organize and direct its own tournaments each year. Second, the Society seeks to stimulate discourse around important issues at Brandeis through public debates, moderated discussions, and other events.
