Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged:
Judging approach: policy maker
Policy priority: Issues
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: Liberal Policymaker - Will listen to any argument, as long as it is relevant in the round. I value all arguments equally, from topicalities to theory, with no disdain for any type. Debaters will be judged based on their understanding of arguments as well as how they debate them. Real world scenarios are preferred, but not necessary. A well-structured impact calculus is an advantage. +
