Hello Everyone,

I'm getting a prep-group together for the National Open. Last year there were 27 teams participating, and it proved to be worth everyone’s time.

Each team will be assigned two briefs to write before the tournament (early-birds get their pick, so sign-up soon!). These briefs shall be distributed among all participants in the prep group. The case topics will be selected from the national case list, as well as any suggestions or requests people may have. The briefs must be submitted by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, February 12 and (hopefully) will be sent out the following Morning. There will be little to no grace for late submissions.

The Guidelines for the briefs:
-Must be *at least* 5 pages and 10+ cards, not including separate page for the TOC
-Briefs should have page numbers (please send them as PDF documents if possible)
-Must include complete citations (e.g. author, credentials, date, publication, url, researcher's initials, etc.)
-Must include at least one disadvantage

Please only include arguments that you would actually run in round. No one wants a brief filled with lame arguments. Please do not ask to prep the case you are running.

Also, make the arguments diverse (not one argument proving a point with a dozen isolated incidents that "prove" it).

If you are interested, pm or e-mail me ( jonahabarnes[at]gmail[dot]com ) ASAP and I will give you access to the google document which has the assignments.

Thanks,
Jonah Barnes

We're in. Do you just want us to pick cases from the NC caselist?
