Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 35
Judging approach: Stock Issues
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: mainly a stock issues judge but if the occasion calls for it, I can come in as a policy maker. I believe in evidence and hitting as many fronts as possible..


Rounds judged: 6
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
LD debate should revolve around the values and how they will be measured. I want to hear some philosophy behind your ideas, This is LD not CX.
