The next two national opens are a month away, but I know that there are a lot of regional tournaments happening within the next month, so Jacob and I wanted to go ahead and get assignments out for this one.
I'm stealing JMP's guidelines for the NC one (which was super helpful, by the way).
The Guidelines for the briefs:
-Must be *at least* 5 pages or (preferably) 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
-Don't questionably cut evidence. Give context to the evidence, at least the full paragraph.

with your team name and any cases you think should be on the list if you're interested. Each team will most likely have two cases to brief. Just make sure they don't suck. The deadline for turning in briefs is March 5th.
