Term Paper (term paper Outline attached):
You will be required to write one term paper this semester. The specifications are as follows:
You must write a 4-6 page term paper on a cyberlaw of your choice. This project provides you with an opportunity to increase and demonstrate your understanding of cyberlaw theory and practice. The paper will be broken down into three parts. You will need to pick a law(s) that you find interesting. The paper must be 4-6 pages detailing the below questions.
Before completing the below steps, please be sure to have the law that you are researching approved.
Thesis: What are you researching (This is where you will need to choose a specific law)? What is the position that you want to take (Do you agree or disagree with the current way in which the law is written)?
Background: What is the existing point you want to challenge or support, and how did the law get to be that way?
Now take a look at the inadequacies and adequacies of the law you are researching.
Inadequacies: What are the deficiencies in the current way of doing things, or what are the weaknesses in the argument you are attacking?
Adequacies: How will we have a better situation, mode of understanding or clarity of procedure with what you are advocating? In short, how can the law be improved (or not diminished)? (This is where you will have the chance to change the law with your own ideas of how it should be improved).
Conclusion: Why should this new proposal of the law be adopted?
A detailed implementation plan is NOT expected, but you should provide enough specifics for practical follow-up. In making the recommendations, you are expected to draw on theories, concepts and readings.
When writing the term paper you must have a minimum of 3-5 outside sources cited and referenced in the paper.
In addition to the 4-6 pages of the paper itself, you must include a title page and a reference page.
Your title page must include the title of your paper, the date, the name of the course, your name, and your instructor’s name.
Your reference page must be written in APA citation style, Arial or Time New Roman styles, 12-point font.
Page margins Top, Bottom, Left Side, and Right Side = 1 inch, with reasonable accommodation being made for special situations.
Your paper must be in your own words, representing original work. Paraphrases of others’ work must include attributions to the authors. Limit quotations to an average of no more than 3-5 lines, and use quotations sparingly. It is always better to write the information in your own words than to directly quote.
Papers will automatically run through Turnitin upon submission. PAPERS
