Traditional LD judge


Speak clearly. Speed is not an issue as long as you speak clearly. If I can’t understand you, I will put down my pen. You will not get credit for saying anything that I cannot understand.

The value and criterion is the essence of the round; don’t forget that. LD is a value debate, not strictly an evidence debate.

Signpost clearly throughout with contention numbers/letters, and refer to evidence clearly (include topical content, not just the author name in your reference).

No K cases.

Remember decorum, and have fun.

Be diligent about keeping track of your own time.

In your final speech you should be clear about voting points.
