Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged: 15
Judging approach: Tabula Rasa
Policy priority: Resolution of substantive issues is more important than communication skills
Evidence philosophy: Quality of evidence is more important than quantity of evidence
Paradigm: I'm very simple. All I truly ask is that you give me a weighing mechanism and/or tell me the role of the ballot. Clarity is key as well.

LD

Rounds judged: 25
Approach: Resolution of substantive issues is more important than communication skills
Philosophy:
Same as CX. I am placing the burden of debating on the debaters. You tell me how I should vote and why I should vote that way.
