THIS SPECIAL EDITION WoW IS OPEN TO BOTH BILETA DELEGATES AND UH STUDENTS, BUT THE POSITIONS ARE OPEN TO DELEGATES ONLY – STUDENTS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND, TO QUESTION AND JUDGE!
Which British and Irish Law Education and Technology Association (BILETA) delegate is the most analytical, brave, persuasive, intelligent Warrior???
To discover the answer to this question, I am delighted to release the Special Edition BILETA WoW positions for MONDAY 11th APRIL, to be held in the Courtroom (in the Law Building on DeHavilland campus) at 5-6pm.
If you would like to defend any of these positions, please simply state ‘I volunteer’ – providing your full name – using the comments box below, and I will assign you a position at random (subject to availability):
1. That government surveillance reduces terrorism
2. That individuals do not ‘own’ their internet identity
3. That online piracy is killing the music industry
4. That there is no such thing as ‘teaching excellence’
5. That China is correct in banning Western social media platforms
You will need to consider the position, research it carefully and then defend it for one minute – then be subjected to questions from the audience.
You will be marked on three criteria: (i) content – what you say initially, and in response to questions; (b) presentation – how you say it, and how well you controlled the crowd; and (c) popularity – the public vote. The judge’s decision is final – and I will be your judge! N.B. If you volunteer, then you MUST attend and participate – no ‘cold feet’.
See you on the 11th April!
