you’re going to want to put some time into this and not wait for the last minute but the first part of this is that you’re going to choose a case that you want to rate your research paper on so that’s your discussion for this week and you want to look at a business law case so you can even Google business law case or civil law case but that means that you want to find a case that has to do with business law and I also want you to find a case that has already been determined so make sure that it’s been decided so for this assignment you’re going to write a 1,500 word to 2500 word paper APA and I have some guidelines for APA in this document and under this tab you’re going to find first of all the requirements for the paper and as well as the rubric okay so here are all of the requirements for the paper you’re going to have a cover page you’re going to write an introduction you’re going to do a summary of the case so that talks about who’s the plaintiff who’s the defendant what facts were in dispute you’re going to talk about what was the issue that was before the court meaning what were the question the court was asked to us decide then you’re going to talk about the court ruling and the reasoning and then your position or your opinion of the case and the outcome and support that by facts what were the implications of the court’s ruling on business and individuals in business and then you have a conclusion and a reference page so if you go down here you’ll see the rubric and you can download that and this gives you an idea of how this will be graded you will need for reliable documented sources so make sure that you pick a case number one that’s a business case okay since this is a business law case so it can’t be a criminal case I want you to pick something that’s interesting to you so find a case that you find interesting and then finally find one where you can find enough information about it so you want for reliable documented sources so you don’t want to use something from Wikipedia for instance you want to make sure that you can find enough information that’s valid and reliable but this rubric tells you what it’ll be graded on so 100 points is on content make sure that you fully research it and all the information is included the structure and the organization of your paper make sure your opinion is included make sure you follow APA format that it’s of appropriate length and you have a reference page and that you know very few grammar and spelling errors so the paper as a whole is worth 200 points but like I mentioned as a
