Is a individual debating competition held every year by the UCC Law Society. It is usually held in the second half of the academic year and the final has traditionally been on the night of the Law Society's AGM.

The competition did not take place in the Law Society's 76th Session, as the committee declined to organise it. Instead, an "unofficial" competition was organised by Kieran Walsh, who also acted as Chief Adjudicator and provided prize money, under the name "I Can't Believe It's Not LawSoc Gold Medal".
