One debater affirms the resolution while another opposes or negates it, demonstrating a clash of competing but morally defensible values. This style of debate simulates the famous debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas.

2023 Resolution

The individual right to property ought to be valued above the economic interests of the community.


A team of two debaters proposes a specific plan to accomplish the goal stated in the resolution while another team of two debaters opposes the plan and/or the resolution. This form of debate simulates argumentation in a legislative body.

2023 Resolution

The United States Federal Government should significantly reform its import and/or export policy within the bounds of international trade.


A team of two debaters presents legal arguments to appeal the decision in a fictional court case while an opposing team of two students responds with legal arguments to defend the fictional decision. This form of debate is designed to simulate oral argument before an appellate court.
