Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 1
Judging approach: Tabula Rasa
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quantity of evidence and quality of evidence are of equal importance
Paradigm: I would consider myself to be a tabula rasa judge with a strong emphasis in the stock issues. I am willing to vote on any issue that I am told to vote on. I will fall back on the stock issues if nothing else is presented in the round.
