  • Ciaran Harkness

    Student & DM Alumnus

    Glasgow University

    Having participated in Debating Matters as a student in *years redacted*, Ciaran is back with Debating Matters as an alumnus and judge. When not helping with the competition, he can be found getting his coffee fix whilst organising events as the vice president (academic) of the University Law Society, and being attacked by hordes of screaming children in a part-time capacity. Ciaran is presently preparing to present legal arguments in front of judges from the UK Supreme Court and European Court of Human Rights through his studies, and so serves as a reminder to all participants that the thrilling and terrifying experience of being put on the spot that Debating Matters gives will never truly leave you.
