About the Event

The voice of the marginalised is often overshadowed by the voice of the powerful. A debate offers a safe platform to open ourselves to positive discussion and provides a safe environment for learning how to brush off your mistakes, learn from them and ultimately move forward.

Second Edition of NMIMS ERISTICA – National Level Debate Competition organised by SVKM’S NMIMS School of Law, Navi Mumbai enables the students with an opportunity to come forward and experience the art of debating and take away experience, expertise and excellence. Being a part of the newer generations, it is imperative to discuss and debate over the problems in society and any solutions for the same that may arise as students and future lawmakers of the country. It strives to provide a safe platform for students to grow and experiment with their communication skills and critical thinking.

Participants will have to advance in 3 rounds, with Preliminary and Semi-Finals having the topic “Does cultural appropriation promote the heritage of a community or hamper it?” and the Final round having the topic “Is language/accent another basis for Racial Discrimination?.
