Event Description:

Resolved: Justice requires open borders for human migration.


  • Debates in this division will follow the standard 6-3-7-3-4-6-3 format.
  • Each debater has four minutes of prep time to use as they wish.
  • Five preliminary rounds, with two preset rounds. Rounds 3-5, as much as possible, will be paired high-low in brackets, respecting side constraints when necessary.
  • Due to the truncated format of our debate rounds, we ask that NO DISCLOSURES are given during the rounds. While we appreciate the need for them, the tight schedule does not provide enough time for them.
  • Laptop computers and tablet devices may be used by debaters, but may not be used to receive information for competitive advantage from non-competitors (coaches, assistant coaches, teammates, other students, etc.) inside or outside of the room in which the competition occurs.
