Directions of paper preparation :
i. Papers should be about 750 words (approx. 3 pages) Use the word count feature in Microsoft Word
ii. Do not use Wikipedia for legal references. Points will be deducted if you do. Use legal texts, journals, resources, our textbook, etc.
iii. References may be footnoted – at the bottom of the page using numbers. Do not list just webpage addresses. The title of what is being referenced must be shown.
iv. Strong readability (this means correct spelling, grammar, capitalization, written in a research style not as a conversation, etc.)
v. Please note: Personal, opinion-based discussions and those that read like a conversation with a peer (using I , you and we ) are not acceptable. Write using the third person – like the text book.
