These are basic rules and general guidelines for speakers. Other general rules and conventions in Academic Debate shall be observed.
(1) The affirmative constructive speaker shall present the affirmative’s case, i.e., reasons why Japan should legalize voluntary active euthanasia. (The speaker can present a specific plan that produce advantages over the present policy.)
(2) The negative constructive speaker shall show the negative’s case, including disadvantages that would result from the affirmative plan. The negative must defend the present system, with minor repairs if necessary; it may not propose a “counter-plan.”
(3) The rebuttal speakers shall refute and rebuild the arguments presented in the constructive speeches. Any new major argument may not be presented in rebuttal or summary speeches.
(4) The summary speakers shall summarize the debate and show that their own side’s points are strongerthan those of the other side.
(5) In the cross-examination, after each constructive speech, the other team (any member from the team) may ask questions and any member from the constructive speaker’s team can answer the questions.
(6) Speakers are allowed to read prepared manuscripts and quotations but they are strongly encouraged to maintain “public-speaking” delivery such as eye contact.
5. Awards
Awards will be presented by Japan Debate Association (JDA) Kyushu Chapter.
