Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: At heart, I am open to hear both sides of the arguement, but I must be offered sound reasoning and structure to be won over. While I do expect a rapid-fire delivery of an argument, I must be able to clearly understand what is being said and strongly recommend vocal emphasis as opposed to speeding. Debaters should use extreme caution using kritiks or jargon, but I find counter-plans successful under most topics.
