Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Policy Maker
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: Affirmative affirms the resolution. Negative negates it. Everything within those boundaries short of rudeness is fair game. Topicality is important, but should not be frivolous. Read fast if you want... But always, always speak clearly. Clear speech is more important than fast speech. Spreading is not impressive. Strong communication skills are. Clash is necessary if you want to give me a reason to vote for you.

LD

Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Philosophy:
Argue strongly surrounding a driving value. Provide solid criteria for choosing your value over your opponent's value that is resolution/topic relevant. Clash is necessary if you want to give me a reason to vote for you.
