Euthanasia discussed in President University legal forum

Report Post

President University Major Association of Law held President University Legal Forum (PULF) on May 13-14, 2019 at Antero Hotel, Jababeka. The theme “Human Rights” was carried out for students to voice their opinions about human rights and providing a platform for them to be able to develop themselves.

The competition consists of two stages. The first stage was ranking 1 or RnR which was done on the first day. This stage selected 6 finalists to proceed to the next stage. The second stage is Legal Forum. At this stage, the finalists gave speeches and debated to express their opinions on various human right cases.

“We chose human rights theme because this is the most common problem happens around us whether we realize it or not. Other than that, euthanasia specifically is chosen as the debate motion because there are a lot of people who are not familiar with this topic,” said Reynaldo Arya, the committee of PULF.

Further, the committee hopes that euthanasia cases get more attention from various parties. This because euthanasia still becomes a debatable topic.

The competition was not only participated by law students but also various students from other majors in President University. One of these participants was a team from Communications and International Relations students who won this competition.
