Prepare a paper with a minimum of four complete pages (not including title or reference page/double spaced) on a topic of your choice we’ve covered in class this semester. You should discuss the legal principle involved and you can include cases from our text in your discussion. You need to present both sides of the issue. This paper needs to be typewritten and follow APA standards. You need a title page and at least 1 reference. I want this written in your own words, your understanding of an issue, not copied from the textbook or any other source. If an idea isn’t yours but you’ve stated in your own words it still needs to be referenced. Do not have any direct quotes more than a few sentences and then that would have to be single spaced
Some of the popular topics are workmen’s compensation, employment discrimination, contracts, defamation, negligence, administrative agencies. etc
