Judge Paradigms
A “judging philosophy” is a short-hand explanation that describes your predispositions and
discloses how you will decide a round. These are extremely important to the debaters because
different philosophies emphasize some arguments over others. If you’re a new judge, it is normal
not to have a philosophy yet. Judging philosophies are developed from watching debate rounds
and figuring out what you find persuasive.
