Custom Congress Research

We know that we may not provide pre-made briefs for every congress tournament your teams attends, so we offer affordable custom congress research to fill in the gaps.

We can create custom research briefs for your team that include everything you would see if any of our congress briefs: affirmative and negative analysis, a general summary, at least 10 pieces of evidence, and notes on how to use complex cards for each piece of legislation.

We can create our custom briefs with two types of research based on your preference:

     (1) Previous Research ($5 per piece of legislation) -  Research published in previous briefs for the same or very similar topics. Typically previous research is only available for 20-40% of legislation.

     (2) New Research ($18 per piece of legislation) - Research completed from scratch for your tournament.

It typically takes 1-3 days to compile previous research, and 2-2.5 weeks to complete new research.  If you have a tournament coming up, please contact us as soon as possible to ensure we have time to create and compile the brief.  Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee we will be able to complete your research request on short notice.

If you are collaborating with another school, we are happy to split payment between multiple parties. Please just let us know when you order!


If you are interested in a custom congress brief, please contact us at with the following information:

  • Tournament Legislation (full text)

  • Date of tournament and desired brief completion date

  • Preference of previous research or new research

  • Email(s) to send invoice and completed brief

  • Any special requests

Once we receive this information, our team will get to work!  If you have requested previous research to be used, we will first verify which pieces of legislation have previous research available, and we will contact you for final approval as the brief cost may vary depending on what research is available.

We are excited to hear from you and help you with your next tournament!
