UNAIR NEWS – A saying, “Efforts will never betray the results”, seems very appropriate to the students of Faculty of Law (FH) Universitas Airlangga. They won second place a national debate competition organized by Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH) Karawaci on Wednesday-Friday, May 23-25.
Various preparations have been made by delegations of Semi Autonomous Body (BSO) of Airlangga Young Jurist Society (MYMA) in a relatively short period of time, ie only three weeks. They began to build the pros and cons for each motion contested to undergo regular training in between their classes and manage the time between college assignments and preparation for the competition.
“We are preparing for about three weeks because, previously we also held a national debate contest, Airlangga Law Compettion 2018. Some delegates also just joined other competitions, “said the head of the delegation, Widy.
“Xavier and I have just returned from the Constitutional Court debate competition in May,” he added.
The delegation are divided into two teams, speakers and research teams. Speakers were Widyanti Wibowo, Xavier Nughraha, and Krisna, while research were Safira Ramadanty and Nina Amelia.
Widy, the sixth semester student, said she was proud of her team’s success this time as there was very limited preparation. Nevertheless, FH delegates were able to win from a competition followed by various universities like Diponegoro University, Padjadjaran University, and Syarif Hidayatullah University.
“Our preliminary round was against the State University of Jember and the University of Indonesia. In two rounds, we won 3-0 for each victory. Then, the semifinals, we met Padjadjaran University with the motion on leniency program implementation in competition law in Indonesia. We got a 2: 1 victory point. In the final, we were against Diponegoro University with a motion to enact the revision of Creative Economy Law, “he said. (*)
