    In the comment I post a pdf file with personal feedback and some tips for you to look at.

    Hope that they are helpful! If you have any doubts do not hesitate to contact me.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Taehoon Kim

    Reason for Decision:

    First of all, thank you for your time and speeches. You both did a great job and I enjoyed listening to you.

    A general warning is to be careful with the timing!! Opposition went over their time more than 30 seconds in one of their speeches. This, if the judge considers it as an unfair advantage, is enough to give the victory to the other team. In this case, I do not believe it was but if you want to talk to me about that feel free to message me!

    Once said that let's go to the fun part! Congratulations Taehoon Kim, the victory goes to the opposition!

    Just saw that the reasoning was not posted correctly, once again sorry guys. Here you have it once again:

    While both cases were really well built and you both brought forward compelling arguments the debate at the end was summarised to the fact that opp argued that it was not a matter of need but of will and possibility and provided reasoning why this would be the case. Prop failed to argue why sentencing and forensic science were not being taken into account other than "we will take it step by step". And the case against opp was basically stating that the UN had money and that the flaws brought up were to be expected but did not take from the reform in a significant manner. Therefore the main clash of this debate went to opp.

    Any questions let me know! - María Odériz on July 19, 2020 at 07:29AM EST
