About the Event

NMIMS ERISTICA is the 1st edition of a National Level Debate Competition organised by SVKM’S NMIMS School of Law, Navi Mumbai.

The debate competition aims to provide the students with an opportunity to come forward and experience the art of debating and take away experience, expertise and excellence. It strives to provide a safe platform for students to grow and experiment with their communication skills and critical thinking.

Hence, the topic for this debate, “Is popular support enough to justify a social norm”, is befitting not just at this time, but since and for time immemorial in a democracy. This debate will be based on the Lincoln-Douglas debate format, i.e. one on one debate in order to promote individualism amongst contestants.


The competition is open to all the students pursuing an undergraduate course in any registered University.
