M5 Written Assignment
This assignment should be between 2 and 4 pages, and should be the product of careful thought and more than one draft. Please remember that when providing an answer to the specific questions posed, it is not enough to give the correct answer unless you back up that answer with a legal argument that includes the following:
- A brief restatement of the legal question posedusually a sentence or two that focus on the specific legal issue in this case, without reference to extraneous facts or information.
- A statement of the applicable law or rule that should be applied to the facts in this case. This will be taken from the text, and will not consist of a personal opinion or ethical reaction, but rather be a statement (usually only one or two sentences) that summarizes the rule of law that you will apply to come to a correct answer. You should not restate the law in its entirety, but instead summarize the appropriate law into a short explanation of the ruling principle in this case.
- Finally, a clear statement that explains how you applied the applicable law to these facts to reach a specific conclusion. This will usually be a few sentences culminating in an answer to the specific question posed in the text. This portion of your answer should demonstrate original thinking and reasoning, and result in a definite conclusion.
All three elements are really needed for a complete answer. Remember that a “gut” feeling or an answer that tells me what you think is “right” is not enough in a course that emphasizes the accuracy of application and the importance of making a persuasive argument that explains that application.
