The second edition of NLS Union Debate, organised by the Literary and Debating Society of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU), will be held on Thursday.
The first edition saw the former Lokayukta N. Santosh Hegde and professor G. Haragopal discuss the Anna Hazare-led anti-corruption movement. Its success prompted the organisers to make the event, which is open to public, a regular affair.
The motion for the second NLS Union Debate is ‘This house believes that intelligence agencies in India ought to be regulated by legislation'.
Aditya Sondhi, a practising advocate and an alumnus of NLSIU, will argue that the lack of legislation is unconstitutional.
S.T. Ramesh, retired Director-General and Inspector- General of Police and former official at the Research and Analysis Wing, will oppose this stance.
The event, to begin at 6 p.m., will be held on NLSIU campus here. Modelled on the Oxford and Cambridge Unions, this form of parliamentary debating features three speakers on each team – an expert in the field, a faculty member and a student of National Law School.
