Cork to bid for Worlds

e-mail from Derek Lande


I am pleased to announce that the University College Cork Law & Philosophical Societies will be lodging a bid to host the World University Debating Championships in Cork, Ireland in 2008/2009.

We hosted the European Championships in 2005, and have hosted the largest Irish Intervarsity for the last four years. This combined with breaking two teams at last years World Championships leads us to believe we have a team with the experience to host one of the best worlds ever.

The proposed Convenor is Mr. Art Ward of the UCC Law Society. The proposed Chief Adjudicator is Mr. Derek Lande of the UCC Philosophical Society. We are also delighted to announce that Mr. Bob Nimmo has agreed to come on board as our tabs director.

We will be releasing more information to the debating community in due course, but we just wanted to let people know that there will in fact be somebody bidding for worlds this year. In the meantime if anybody has any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me on

In the meantime we look forward to seeing many of you at UBC Worlds and will hopefully be welcoming you to Cork in two years time.

Derek Lande
Proposed Chief Adjudicator
Cork Worlds 2009
