Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 30+
Judging approach: Policy Maker
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: No spreading is preferred. Solvency is a big issue, so are planks and stock issues. Kritiks, DAs and Ts must be run well and make sense. Impact calculuses are welcome. Clear and concise evidence and tag lines are a must.
