At the end of every ADI we run a full tournament. This means 4 to 5 rounds and a break to Semis (at least, depending on the number of teams), power matched rounds and fresh competitive topics. Often the people running the tournament, setting the topics and adjudicating are the same people who will be doing those things for upcoming international tournaments! (check out our faculty profiles for clues).
The purpose of the tournament is to create real-world competitive environment for students to test the debate skills they have acquired over the week. At this tournament, you can be assured that the judging pool is experienced and qualified (the faculty and fellows will be the judges) - so you will get detailed feedback and well reasoned decisions.
For a sample of some debates held at the ADI - including demonstration debates - check out our collection of ADI debate videos!
