Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 15+
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: While I am a tab judge, there are some non-negotiable things I consider: • Speaking is paramount! Speaking too fast is discourage (no "spreading") • Arguments need to be clear & explained •Other than this, the debaters will make the round & can ask specific questions

LD

Rounds judged: 20+
Approach: Equal
Philosophy:
•Speaking is paramount! Speaking too fast is discourage (no "spreading") • Arguments need to be clear & explained • Traditional LD - with the value & standard framework - is needed (no "progressive LD") •Other than this, the debaters will make the round & can ask specific questions
