    Use of evidence: 4.5 4.5
    Delivery skill: 4.5 4.5
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5 5
    Identification of key points: 5 5
    Comments: Good use of UN members' law of banning dolphin hunting (i.e. Chile, India, Costa Rica); Solid point of UN ban on ivory trade and use of luxury as opposed to necessity. Very coherent responses and solid point made with use of traditions in culture and economic factors; Good point made on inhumane killings of most animals and the hypocritical response that would follow a ban.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Mishak Sam-Hinton

    Reason for Decision:

    Both individuals made valid points and were coherent in speech and arguments. I feel that the Opposition makes a stronger argument due to the fact that most ways in which animals are killed can be considered inhumane to an extent, as well as the fact that most members of the UN do not have laws already.
