    Use of evidence: 3 3
    Delivery skill: 4.5 4
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 3.5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 3.5
    Identification of key points: 4.5 3.5
    Comments: I think you do a really good job to point out where y'all agree and where y'all disagree and why you should win overall based on those key distinctions! I think you are making really good arguments but you can spend some more time developing. For instance, what cultural differences would significantly affect universal criminal justice reform?

    The decision is for the Proposition: Jane Hahn

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote PROP because I think that the OPP brings up good points to consider but does not fully refute/explain why those arguments are better than the opponent’s (which largely stems from not using the full time). While I think that the UN may not be the most effective at enforcing criminal, I think that if both teams agree there needs to be reforms then it seems the UN could do this. If the OPP did a better job proving either that the UN would not be able to reform at all, or the reforms would be actively harmful, then I’d have to consider that more, but the OPP does not fully develop arguments for either of these claims.
