Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: Other (please explain below)
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: CX or Policy debate is a combination of debate theory, work-ability of the case and then delivery. I find myself a stock issues judge that puts a high value on the depth of the analysis and arguments/counterarguments as the round progresses.


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Combination of analysis and arguments and counterarguments presented by both sides. LD forgoes the normal stock issues and the necessity for a working plan to solve something, instead you focus on the logic and reasoning of each debator in a round.
