Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
For CJ400, you must conduct research on a constitutional issue approved by your instructor and write a paper analyzing what you find, using U.S. Constitutional provisions, statutes, and court cases to support how you would solve the constitutional issue, and discussing social policy implications of your solution to the issue.
The purposes in conducting this research and writing this paper are to improve your ability to synthesize, analyze, and evaluate information carefully and objectively, using the U.S. Constitution, statutes, and U.S. Supreme Court cases; use this information to propose a solution to a constitutional issue; discuss social policy implications of your solution; and present your ideas in clear written form directed to a specific audience, in this case, your class.
To complete this research paper, you should:
Your paper must include:
The text of this paper should be at least 3,750 words or fifteen computer-generated/typewritten double-spaced pages long.
