Instructions on posting your Research Topic and Preliminary Information  


1. Read How to Write an A+ Research Paper - http://www.aresearchguide.com/1steps.html - read "Choose a Topic" - http://www.aresearchguide.com/1steps.html#step1 and then read "Finding information" - http://www.aresearchguide.com/1steps.html#step2


2. Next select your topic you wish to write about. State the topic in very general terms, unless of course, you already have narrowed your topic to a more specific one.


3. Next post information you have collected on your topic. You can do this simply by going to either google.com, or wikipedia, or about.com or other such search engine. 


4. The Summary will then include:

a. your legal research and writing paper topic

b. preliminary information on the topic

remember to continue your research to obtain an opinion on the research topic, as your next assignment on your paper will be to post  - your argumentative thesis 


here is a sample:


Recently I saw in the newspaper Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton walking in the "Remember Selma March". This brought to mind the Civil Rights era in the "60's with Martin Luther King.


I then decided to pick - Important Civil Rights cases in the 1960's

(I may narrow that down to a smaller topic, and thesis) but for now I will just use "Civil Rights Cases" as my topic.


I then go to google and type in "Civil Rights Cases" in the 1960's. I found a good site on wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African-American_Civil_Rights_Movement_(1955-1968)


This brings up the case Brown v. Board of Education. So I will then read that case, and see what other cases were heard by the Supreme Court during this period, and after more research I will select a more specific thesis or position I will take, but only after I have done enough research to gain a opinion one way or another about the Civil Rights Cases.


Above is how to post your summary on your legal writing papers.

Remember that your research is around "cases", and not just, for example the "Civil Rights era". We need to have at least 5 cases cited in your papers. So concentrate on finding cases. Substantial points will be deducted if your paper is not focused on the analysis of law cases.
