NPDL Tournament of Champions

2022 — NSDA Campus, US

Round Rules

The NPDL Online Round Rules can be found here, at Article XIII of the Legislative Code.


The evidence rules changed this year. The new rule reads as follows:

SECTION 12: Evidence
A. Debaters should primarily rely on logic and general knowledge.
B. Debaters should not cite published sources during the round. Judges should enforce this rule by giving a claim supported by a citation the same weight as they would give a claim not supported by a citation.

This rule is not protestable to the Protest Committee; we ask judges to enforce it.
