I am currently a Freshman at UC Berkeley, majoring in Business Administration and Legal Studies. In high school, I was a part of my Speech and Debate team for three years. I participated in Expository Speaking and have done a bit of Parlimentary Debate as well. During my senior, I was Co-President of my team. Although this is my first time judging LD, I will be most convinced by whoever is most persuasive. Additionally, all arguments should be throughly supported by factual claims. Furthermore, speak slowly and clearly. It is really important for me to understand what is being said and what arguments are being said. I like to see how effectively students are able to communicate their thoughts and claims. Lastly, make sure your arguments are well structured and organized. Keep your framework clean, do not jump from one idea to the next. Transition from one point to the next smoothly and not abruptly. I know there is a small amount of time to prepare for your round, and I am not expecting seamless presentations, but I will award more points to those that put an effort into structuring their arguments and ideas well.
