About the Academic and Debating Society

Paradox, the Academic and Debating Society of Chanakya National Law University, is as time-honoured of an institution as the University itself. With time, the ADC of CNLU has grown into a popular debating circuit where the debating culture has been passed on from one academic batch to another while teaching essentials like oratory skills, teamwork, personality and knowledge enhancement, along with hospitality, effective management, coordination and organization when hosting offline Parliamentary debates.
