Faculty of Law Wins 1st College Inter-faculty Debate

The Faculty of Law of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has emerged winners of the first Inter-faculty students debate organized by the College of Humanities and Legal Studies (CHLS) on Monday, March 5, 2018.

After beating their colleagues from the Faculty of Arts at the preliminary stages of the competition in a fiercely contested manner, students from the Faculty of Law met with students from the School of Business who had also beaten students from the Faculty of Social Sciences to book a place in the final round of the competition. 

Represented by the Faculty of Law were, Alexander Hackman-Aidoo, Percy N. W. Nunoo and Sister Callister Tetteh who battled it out intellectually with their colleagues from the School of Business, Emmanuel Nwanwa Mensah, Isaac Owusu Kwakye, and Katherine Makafui Amoussouvi; in the final round of the competition.

The two teams- the Faculty of Law and the School of Business debated on the motion “Cost Sharing in Higher Education is The Most Pragmatic Way to Sustain Education at The Tertiary Level,” with the students from the School of Business arguing for the motion while their counterparts spoke against the motion.

By giving antecedents to the style of financing education in Ghana from the late 1960’s till now, the students from the School of Business gave reasons why it is impossible for the government to take full responsibility of financing every student’s education at the tertiary level, including the increase in population amongst others. 

Their colleagues from the other end of the motion stood to the fact that it is expedient and possible for the government to fully fund the education of every students in the country.

At the end of the final round, the Faculty of Law was adjourned winners of the Debate with a 79.3% score against the School of Business who scored 73.3%.

Certificates were awarded to all participants of the debate and the winning team took home a trophy and the bragging rights from now till the next time this competition is held again.
