The following information is the Debate Union’s disclosure of its Top 50 judges or the top 50% of the pool at each given tournament. Judges are listed in alphabetical order, not rank order. These preference sheets are disclosed as our contribution to transparency in our preference sheets. Debate Union teams do not have autonomous control over their preference sheets and final decisions are the responsibility of the Director. Our preference decisions are situational and inclusion or exclusion is not a reflection of the Debate Union’s overall opinion of that judge as professional or as a person. As a matter of privacy, it is our program policy to not respond to questions about specific judges since the willingness to answer in some cases–or our refusal to answer in other cases–may result in a direct or indirect disclosure of private information.
