The Inner Temple Debating Society welcomes members at all levels of experience. The Inn participates in practically every Inter-Varsity tournament including those held at Oxford, Cambridge, Dublin and St Andrews to name but a few. The Inner Temple also hosts its own Inter-Varsity which has became one of the highlights of the debating social calendar and attended by debaters from all over the world. In years past the society has sent teams to tournaments all over the world, including the European and World Championships, for which the Inn has provided all travel costs.
The society also regularly hosts the Inner Temple Inter-Varsity Debating Competition, one of the most prestigious competitions on the debating circuit.
