What does a typical debate look like?
Seven minutes after the designated start time, the moots will be selected and released by an administrator in the call. Teams will then be moved into breakout rooms to allow them to prepare for their debate.
Following the limited prep phase, teams will be moved into new breakout rooms with an adjudicator and their opposition to allow their debate to commence. For clarification on the rules, style of debate, and limited prep, click here.
If you are late to join the debate call, you will be moved into the breakout room with the rest of your team but will not gain any additional preparation time. If you or your team do not join the call and have not informed us beforehand, you will face consequences including, but not limited to, immediate expulsion from the competition.
Your reserve team member (if you have one) will not be allowed to help the team during the limited preparation phase but may watch the debate.
