Topic Briefs by 

At, we have designed an exclusive collection of evidence-intensive files for monthly topics:

The Topic Primer: This file is the common brief produced for each topic. It includes a broad collection of evidence that highlights the primary arguments found in literature supporting the core of each side of the topic. Our research emphasizes quality research and topic coverage. By including research from a critical angle - social, political, economic, and philosophical theory - our files will help you and your squad dig deeper into each topic and separates us from other brief companies. Updates to this file are included in The Final Focus. The Topic Primer digital download is scheduled for publication roughly 10 days after the release of the topic. 

The Final Focus: Our project began by reading the files released by our competitors, and this is where that work continues. We find the best arguments produced in other briefs, answer them, and build on the work started in our Topic Primer. Typically this file ranges from 30-50 pages. This download is scheduled for publication around 20 days after the topic release, or roughly a week before debate on the topic begins. 

NEW! The First Constructive: We have heard your request for competition-ready cases! This file includes Pro & Con cases - tagged, complete, and underlined. Read through the cases, practice them for time limits, and you're all set! The First Constructive is scheduled to release with the Final Focus - around the 20th of the month or roughly a week before debate on the topic begins.  

For those who enjoyed last season's Critical Constructive, you will find that we have continued that research and distributed the results among what we believe to be a more affordable option for our subscribers. You will get the same high quality look into some of the critical theory behind many of the arguments on the topic packaged in a more accessible format.

We will also release Special Edition files for the NCFL and NSDA National Tournaments in May and June.
