Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: equal
Paradigm: I believe in Stock issues, I do not like for participants to speed read because I think the delivery of your plan is very important for a judge to flow. I do not think K's hold any ground nor do counter plans have any importance. Evidence is very important without evidence a argument cannot stand.


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Equal
I have never participated in LD debate but I know evidence is not as important and you have to be quick on your feet to come up with arguments.
