We at ESU Scotland were very excited at being given the opportunity to host the last World Members’ Conference in Edinburgh in September 2008. Over 250 delegates from 31 countries attended.

 ESU World 2008
Welcome to the ESU Scotland Judges' Hub

Here you can find all the information you need about joinging our judging panel, as well as loads of useful resources for current judges.

Throughout the year, the ESU runs a number of debating and public speaking tournaments. As well as this, it delivers Debates Outreach Projects.

In order to deliver all of these programmes effectively, we rely on a large panel of volunteer judges and mentors. These are often ex-debaters, who live all over Scotland and allow us to carry out our activities to their fullest extent.

If you are interested joining our judging panel, where you will get the opportunity to judges debates at all levels you feel comfortable with, and will receive full training, or want to become a trained ESU mentor please do get in touch with the Speech and Debate Officer.

If you are new to debating and would like to learn more about judging, we run occasional judging seminars. Please contact ESU Scotland for further details.
