Debating is a form of public speaking or perhaps the best form of training lawyers how to put forth their assertions after research and stand up to the cross questioning. 
A s such in India there are no institutes that take up only debate as a subject in their curriculum but almost all colleges are actively involved in contests and competitions on debating.  
Here are a few law colleges that could be of help if you want to opt for debating as a subject. 

  • Indira Gandhi National Open University, School of Law
  • Faculty of Law, Banaras Hindu University 
  • Faculty of Law, Delhi University 
  • Ashoka University , Kundli, Haryana 
  • National Law School of India University (NLSIU), Bangalore 
  • Jawaharlal Nehru University   
  • Symbiosis law college, Pune 


  1. Can you tell me what is the difference between Public speaking and Debating?
  2. The basic difference between debating and public speaking lies in the manner, method and matter that are presented by them.

    Manner: Debating is very aggressive and enforcing as a point against the other team has to be stressed upon whereas public speaking is presenting views in a docile yet effective manner. There is no competition to outweigh another and the speaker has space to present his ideas calmly.

    Method: The method in debating is an argumentative approach whereas public speaking takes on the form of only voicing details about a certain topic.

    Matter: The matter in debating is comprehensively framed so that it covers all aspects to a topic with effective stress on either for or against the topic whereas in public speaking the speaker can voice ideas both in favor and against the topic he is speaking upon.
