Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Issues
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: When juding a debate round I like to see arguments that focus on the stock issues first and then policy. The affirmative should have a well defined case and a plan that is clearly layed out, so that the negative can attack. I perfer the negative to focus on about 3 well formed arguments rather than trying to make several attacks on each stock issue. Disadvantages are good only if the negative really has a clear link to the actual case at hand. Generally there is so much to debate that I don't care to hear counterplans. Splitting the block is appropriate, but please inform me that you are doing so in your round.
