The paper is intended to give you an opportunity to explore or develop a topic or area in the legal environment of business that you find interesting. No particular topic will be assigned to you nor does the topic have to be one that we cover in class. You can review newspapers or magazines for potential topics if nothing in your own experience or that we discuss in class appeals to you. For example, you can write about your own work environment or your family’s business experiences.
Your grade will be awarded based on
the following considerations:
How well is your topic developed?
Is the discussion focused on a manageable subject?
Does the paper demonstrate your focus?
Did you wrestle with your topic?
Was there some analytical thought expressed?
Was there an analysis of an issue or a set of facts?
Did you demonstrate an understanding of the legal issue or the business issue?
Did you explain what it was you were going to discuss and why?
Do you offer a conclusion?
