Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 25+
Judging approach: tabula rosa
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I am a tab judge who believes that the students should give me the framework for how unflavored the round. If no framework is given usually defer to a policymaker style. I'm ok with speed as long as it doesn't interfere with your clarity and I don't really see the point of performance debate but I will listen to it if there is a real need for it in the debate.

LD

Rounds judged: 10+
Approach: Equal
Philosophy:
I tend to evaluate the round based on the impacts of the values. I will not accept CP's in LD but I will accept a Kritik. I believe that balancing on the neg is a legitimate position.
