Description The writing assignment will consist of a project to be submitted before the end of the final exam period. A presentation of an original work, OF NO MORE THAN 5 pages, double spaced, 1 inch margins all the way around, 12 point Times New Roman font, covering a legal topic of legal research and writing, will be presented.
The topic of this submission will be the role of legislative/statutory or constitutional law interpretation. For example, you may provide a presentation covering research where the prevailing view of the constitution is that it is a “living, breathing” document. Or, you may wish to present your views that the constitution is NOT a living, breathing document, and how that view will affect legislative intent, and then, how that affects legislative research.
To be clear, this assignment should be very widely construed, which is to say, this presentation may be made on ANY aspect of legal thought touching upon constitutional or statutory interpretation. As they say, the sky is the limit! (Well, as long as the “sky” is filled with constitutional or statutory interpretation!)
