This is a basic “how to” in understanding the structure of a Lincoln-Douglas debate case. When you understand the structure, writing cases become easy…and you’ll likely do very well.
Simply put, LD debate cases follow this structure:
- Contention 1
- Contention 2
- Contention 3
Of course cases will vary from this, but keeping it to this simple structure is a better way to ensure a win than embracing a wacky, unorganized style.
