The completed paper should be from 2,400 to 2,800 words, not counting the citations. • A well-stated thesis – understandable? What is the author (the student) trying to do? 5 pts. • Analysis of Topic – 40 pts. • Clarity of Paper – 10 pts. • Strong Conclusion? (Has the author attempted to prove anything? IF so, given the brevity of the paper, has he/she been successful) – 10 pts. • Writing, Spelling, Punctuation – 20 pts. • Sources – Quality and Number (the author should cite at least nine different sources, unless there is an understandable reason – the sources should be of different types, and most should be recent in origin whenever practical and appropriate for the paper) – 15 pts. See “Documenting Legal Research,” The emphasis in grading will be on the research and the substance of the paper. However, poor grammar, bad spelling, incoherent sentences, and other problems of “style” will lead to a lower grade. Also, while writing more than 2,800 words will NOT lead to a penalty, writing less than 2,400 words likely will be penalized. Furthermore, reliance on only a few sources (inadequate citation of sources) will lead to a lower score. Ordinarily, a paper should have at least nine different sources. Also, if you took ideas or information from a source, it is always better to err on the side of citing that source repeatedly – even multiple times throughout your paper – than just to cite it a few times and make it appear for other parts of the paper (other sentences) that the work is yours when in fact the idea or information is something you got from that source. Also, note that even footnoting a source is insufficient when you are not simply paraphrasing the source’s contents but taking your wording came directly from that article: then you should cite the source AND also put the language in quotation marks. Law sources for your paper can be found from many avenues – FindLaw, Justia, Cornell Law School digital library, Lexis-Nexis (this one is available in the digital databases for the UF Libraries) and many others. The term paper gives you much flexibility to write on almost anything related to business law. Common Grammatical Problems Run-on sentence(s). Pronouns and possessives that do not clearly refer back to a noun. For example: Page 13 of 19 Fall 2019 BUL4310 Syllabus- Robert Emerson
