The Second Negative Rebuttal (2NR)

The Second Negative Rebuttal (2NR) is delivered by the same person who delivered the 2NC. This speaker has a tough job in the debate, as I think the 2NR is one of the toughest two speeches in the debate (the other one being the 2NC).

The 2NR is the negative team’s last time to speak and they need to leave a positive impression on the judge while arguing that the affirmative plan is a net undesirable action.

Once debaters have some experience they will have “kicked” some off-case positions by the 2NR and will start the 2NR by . . .
