Judging Philosophy

Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach:
Policy priority:

Paradigm:

LD

Rounds judged: 25
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Philosophy:
Emphasis on communication and education within a debate round are important to me. I understand the need for speaking quickly for the sake of argumentation, but spreading likely won't go well for you. I have the most experience with traditional LD but am not against more progressive arguments as long as they are well executed.
