One motion was leaked due to a technical error prior to the start of the tournament. It read:
Infoslide: Lay judges are members of the public who act as judges in minor legal issues, e.g. petty theft, vandalism, criminal damage, drunk driving. They are not required to have any formal legal training but are required to be from the local community, be of good character, to have good communication skills, and to be reliable. – This house supports the use of local lay judges in minor legal cases.

The CA team consisted of Benji Kalman, Lovro Sprem, and Cliodhna Ni Ch. Tabbing the tournament was Dasha and convening the tournament once again were Dasha Fialkina and Marcell Ottó Ormándy. It was hosted by the Corvinus and ELTE Debate Clubs. The current tab includes motion balance statistics, speaker tab, and team tab, while the tournament will be updated in tabbie2 shortly.
