Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Stock Issues
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I focus a lot on stock issues. I judge mainly quality of evidence. I do not like the speed and spread style. I also judge heavily on dropped arguments.


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Communication skills are more important than resolution of substantive issues
I believe LD Debate should focus on the quality of debating and communication rather than evidence.
