Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged:
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Issues
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I will typically listen to just about any argument that is brought into a round. The single requirement that I have for the neg team is to provide a decent link back to the case. I abhor generalized off-case that can be run in any round. It defeats the entire debate. Other than that anything can go. In high school I usually ran as the 1A/1N and my favorite speech is the first aff rebuttal.
