Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 20
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I am a policymaker judge who does not ignore the stock issues. I believe that CX is a form of communication, and that excessive and distracting speed, as well as rudeness, has no place in the competition.


Rounds judged: 4
Approach: Equal
I still think that LD is ultimately value debate, and that resolution of the value/criterion argument is critical in a round.
