VI. PRE-CONFLICT EVENTS

A. ULTIMATE FRISBEE

Start of Play

a. To begin play the players from each team line up on their end zones and the defense
team pulls (throws) the disc to the other team as a "kick-off". Pulls are long throws,
and they are thrown in efforts of giving the offensive team poor field position and a
chance for the defense to get down the field soon enough to stop advances. The pull is
often started by a member of the defending team raising one arm with the disc to show
that they are ready to pull the disc and begin play.
• Teams consist of 6 players each (3 Males; 3 Females) with reserve players.
• Each player shall wear their respective conflicts shirt or any shirt with the color
of their respective year level (jerseys are allowed).

b. Movement of the Disc: The disc may be moved in any direction by completing a pass
to a teammate. After catching a pass, a player is required to come to a stop as quickly
as possible, and then can only move their non-pivot foot.

c. Scoring: A point is scored when a player catches a pass in the end zone his team is
attacking. After a point is scored, the teams exchange ends. The team who just scored
remains in that end zone, and the opposing team takes the opposite end zone. “Losers
walk.” Play is re-initiated by a pull by the scoring team.

d. Change of Possession: An incomplete pass results in a change of possession. When


this happens the defense immediately becomes the offense and gains possession of the
disc where it comes to a stop on the field of play, or where it first traveled out of
bounds. Play does not stop because of a turnover.

e. Reasons for turnovers


• Throw-away — the thrower misses his target and the disc falls to the ground.
• Drop — the receiver is not able to catch the disc.
• Block — a defender deflects the disc in mid flight, causing it to hit the ground.
• Interception — a defender catches a disc thrown by the offense.
• Out of bounds — the disc lands out of bounds, hits an object out of bounds or is
caught by a player who lands out of bounds or leaps from outside the playing field.

• Stall — a player on offense does not release the disc before the defender has
counted out ten seconds. The 10 second stall count can begin once an offensive
player gains possession of the disc. The count can only be enforced if the defender
is counting it out loud. Otherwise, the offensive player with possession of the disc
may hold on to the disc without passing it indefinitely. If a defender player
switches out with whoever was currently defending the player holding the disc,
the stall count must start over.

CONFLICTS OF LAW 2019


TEMPUS RERUM IMPERATOR

f. Fouls: A foul is the result of contact between players, although incidental contact (not
affecting the play) does not constitute a foul. When a foul disrupts possession, the play
resumes as if the possession were retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees
with the foul call, the disc is returned to the last thrower.

g. Substitutions: Teams are allowed to substitute players after a point is scored or for an
injured player after an injury time out. In the case of an injury substitution, the
opposing team is allowed to make a substitution for a non- injured player.

h. Refereeing: Players are responsible for foul and line calls. Players resolve their own
disputes. This creates a spirit of honesty and respect on the playing field. It is the duty
of the player who committed the foul to speak up and admit his infraction.
Occasionally, official observers are used to aid players in refereeing, known as
observers.

i. Duration of the game: Race to 10 or 30 minutes play WHICHEVER COMES FIRST


• The team who scores ten points first within 30 minutes wins; or
• The team who garners more points (if less than 10 points) within 30 minutes wins.
• In case 30 minutes shall have lapsed and the scores are tied, the team who first
scores in a tie breaker game wins (sudden death match).

j. In reference to letter h (“spirit of the game”), only the marshall hired by the organizers
shall decide in case of conflict.

B. TABLE TENNIS

a. There will be two (2) matches: Men's and Women's. Each match will be the best of
five (5) games. The team who wins three (3) games wins the match.

b. Game is up to eleven (11) points. First player who scores eleven (11) points wins the
game.

c. If both players scored ten (10) points (deuce), the first player to gain a 2-point lead
wins.

d. Only the official ball with a diameter of 40mm shall be used.

e. The right to choose the initial order of serving, receiving and ends shall be decided
by a tossing of coin and the winner may choose to serve or to receive first or to start
at a particular end.

f. Time outs shall be allowed with a maximum of two (2) minutes per tie out. Each
player is entitled to three (3) time outs per game.

argument that the affirmative’s proposal is not necessary.

negative speaker (also asking only categorical questions). He may use this opportunity

clashing with the affirmative case and delivering his constructive speech on the
repercussions or harmful effects of adopting the affirmative’s proposal. He will then

to deliver his constructive speech on the feasibility of adopting their proposal. He will
then be interpellated by the third negative speaker for two minutes.

k. The third negative speaker will then have two minutes of his time to clash with the
affirmative case and to deliver his constructive speech on the impracticability of

PARTICIPATION AND ELIGIBILITY

a. Team Eligibility:

• Each year level may enter only one Team.
• Any Team which utilizes an ineligible Team Member will be disqualified
from the Competition.

b. Team Composition and Selection: A Team is composed of three (3) members and one
(1) alternate member.

c. Minimum requirements for Team Member eligibility:

A person may be a regular member or alternate member of a Team if he or she:

• Is enrolled at Ateneo Law as a full-time student during the current


academic year; and

• Has not competed for MORE THAN ONCE in any of the following:

o Inter-Law School Debate or Moot Court Competition (Ex.: ANC,


IBP Law Week); AND/OR
o Conflicts of Laws Debate Competition

d. One (1) member of the debate team may be replaced only once during the duration
of the competition. He or she may be replaced if has severe medical condition that
cannot allow him or her to participate.

COMPETITION COMMUNICATIONS

a. Only oral communications described in this Rules are permitted. In particular, no


written communication or exhibits may be delivered by any Team Member to any
judge.

b. Written communication during the debate round shall be limited to written


communication among Team Members seated at the table. No other written
communication may take place among the debaters, spectators or Team Members
not present at the table.

c. During a debate round, debaters at the podium and those seated at the table may
not operate laptop, cell phones, handheld or desktop computers or any other
computing device for any purpose.

Persuasive Skills or Manner (30 points), Interpellation (30 points).

SUPREME STUDENT COUNCIL SY 2018-2019 | 28


ATENEO DE DAVAO UNIVERSITY | COLLEGE OF LAW

CONFLICTS OF LAW 2019


TEMPUS RERUM IMPERATOR

b. MATTER: The Matter mark is scored as if the speech was submitted in essay form. It
has everything to do with logic, preparation, arguments, evidence cited, and analytic
skill. It has nothing to do with the presentation.

c. Teams are required to conduct research and prepare their speeches. The formula is
ARGUMENT + EVIDENCE = PROOF. An argument without citing an evidence to
support the same is a mere assertion and does not merit any consideration.

d. As law students, the debaters are expected to use provisions of law and relevant
jurisprudence in support of their arguments. Judges should also consider the quality
of each argument and the relevance of the cited authorities.

e. MANNER: Manner or Presentation is marked out of a possible 30 points and judged


from a purely public speaking perspective: How did the debater actually deliver the
speech? Was the tone correct? The rate of speech? The pitch? The pauses? The eye
contact? The confidence? Etc.

f. Clarity and organization. Judges should listen to the debate as an average reasonable
person with an understanding of the law. The ability of the debater to convey his/her
ideas in a clear manner and with facility of expression are to be considered.

g. The use of humor, the manner of delivery, eye contact, voice, posture, and the ability
of the debater to convince an audience, are some of the elements within the purview
of the Manner criterion.

h. INTERPELLATION: This refers to the ability to cross-examine the opposing debater.


This refers to the success the debater has in clashing with the arguments of the
opposing team. Has he thoroughly understood the presented arguments and have they
responded effectively, logically and comprehensively in refutation.

i. This also includes courtesy and compliance with the rules. Judges should take note of
how a debater asks his questions, the logical sequence of these questions, and their
relevance. Debaters are advised to ask only categorical questions (i.e., those
answerable by yes or no); otherwise broad questions (i.e., how or why questions) will
elicit long explanations and sordid answers. Each debater is allowed two (2) minutes
each to conduct his/her interpellation.

JUDGES

a. There are at least three (3) adjudicators per debate round.

b. Students may not act as judges, except LL.M. and other post-graduate degree
candidates who are not directly affiliated with any Team participating in the debate
at which they are judging.

SUPREME STUDENT COUNCIL SY 2018-2019 | 29


ATENEO DE DAVAO UNIVERSITY | COLLEGE OF LAW

CONFLICTS OF LAW 2019


TEMPUS RERUM IMPERATOR

c. Team faculty advisors or coaches, or other persons directly affiliated with a Team,
may not act as judges in any debate until the Team has been eliminated from the
Competition.

d. No judge should sit on a panel of any debate round involving a Team from a school
with which the judge has an affiliation, acquaintance or other role which would create
an appearance of impropriety, except in situations disclosed to and approved by the
Ateneo Law Forensic Association (ALFA) Moderators.

e. Judges should disqualify themselves from judging a Team if they have a personal or
professional relationship with the school or someone affiliated with that Team, and if
that relationship might jeopardize their impartiality or create an appearance of
impropriety. However, judges should not disqualify themselves from judging a round
merely because they have an acquaintance with a Team Member or other affiliation
or relationship with the school.

f. If a Team competing in a debate round wishes to inform the ALFA that a judge
assigned to that Round might be disqualified under this Rules, it must inform the
Tournament Director prior to the beginning of that debate round. The fact that a Team
Member recognizes a judge is not itself sufficient to disqualify the judge.

g. Each judge is allowed to ask ONE categorical question (no follow-ups) of each debater,
either during his speech. The question and response must fall within the time limits
of the speech delivery.

h. A Chief Adjudicator will be selected in each panel, whose special function is to rule on
any conflicts that may arise during the debate (e.g. whether or not to allow a disputed
line of questioning). The Chief Adjudicator is also charged with announcing the
winner of the debate at the end of the debate. Otherwise, the Chief Adjudicator’s role
and the weight of his scores are equal to those of the other judges. In the event of a
tie, the Chief Adjudicator must confer with his co-adjudicators to break the tie.

SCORING OF DEBATE

a. The adjudicators score each team based on the evaluation criteria: MATTER (40
points), MANNER (30 points) and INTERPELLATION (30 points).

b. The team with the higher score from each adjudicator garners a vote.

c. For the Elimination, the team with at least two (2) votes from the three (3)
adjudicators wins the debate round.

d. For the Final Round, the team with at least three (3) votes from the five (5)
adjudicators wins the debate competition.

time; Provided that the declaration of default shall be made UPON REQUEST by the
