For this assignment you will now be writing a legal memo, which could also be called a “legal argument” “legal paper” or any of several other names. This is just a paper like many others you have written but instead of giving me information on, for example, the major generals of the Civil War, you are giving me an overview of the applicable law and also your legal opinion based on the facts and laws.

Completed Memo/Paper/Argument Part 1 assignments should meet the following specifications:

You may, and should, use appropriate title to organize the information presented to the reader.
3. Research: You must do legal research. Find the applicable law and cases using any source you wish, except for PowerPoints or videos as sources. See link at the left, “Legal Research links” to help you. Google and Google scholar are also helpful.
4. EXAMPLES. EXAMPLES. EXAMPLES. Your paper must include examples from other similar situations. Examples are one of the best ways to explain and understand the law (and probably everything else). Find at least (2) examples for this part (you you need more for the final complete paper). Examples are from other similar cases/situations and are used to illustrate your ideas. You may use secondary sources — you do not have to use actual cases — such as articles found on the web about actual cases.
5. Footnotes: You must use Chicago Manual style footnotes.
• If you just put a URL in the footnote it is 25% off.
• If you use MLA, APA, have a “Works Cited” or “Bibliography” page it is 25% off.
• If you use footers instead of footnotes, it is 25% off.
