Prof. Reine Bethany Research Proposal: The Laws of Nature, or Natural Law, Result in Freedom for All in the United States Introduction: This paper proposes to examine the "Laws of Nature," or natural law, to which Thomas Jefferson refers in paragraph 1 of the Declaration of Independence. These laws of Nature, which proceed from Nature's Creator, guarantee that "all men are created equal." Natural law, as it was also called, was a concept developed in Europe and especially in England and belief in natural law resulted in the parliamentary government of the kingdom of England. American government is arranged in great part according to the pattern set by Parliament. In examining the Laws of Nature, I will be referring to the Declaration of Independence, the Declaration of Sentiments by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and the Letter from Birmingham City Jail, by Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as my research sources. Purpose Statement: The purpose of this proposal is to show an overview of my investigation of natural law. My aim is to show with a brief history of natural law how the concept of natural law was brought to the North American continent by the British colonists, was implemented in the government of the United States, and was responsible for the eventual abolition of slavery. Natural law was also the basis for the development of full rights for women, and the passage of the Civil Rights Acts that were passed into law by the U.S. Congress during the 1960s. Main Research Questions 1. What were the Laws of Nature referred to in paragraph 1 of the Declaration of Independence? 2. How were the Laws of Nature thought to relate to Nature's God, also referred to in paragraph 1 of the Declaration? 3. What is the history of the concept of the Laws of Nature? (These first three questions show the background behind the thinking of the American colonists, who asserted their right to separate from Great Britain based on the rights guaranteed them by natural law.) 4. How did the concept of natural law influence the development of the United States Constitution? (This question will especially examine how the belief in natural law resulted in the Bill of Rights.) 5. How did natural law appear in the defenses of women's rights, abolition, and civil rights during the centuries following American independence from Britain? (This question examines the results of natural law being the foundation of U.S. government.) Major Claims I anticipate finding out that the concept of natural law existed for centuries before the United States was established. My claims will be (1) that the United States was prepared by history to become a human rights sanctuary, (2) that founding a constitution on natural law results in protection of basic human rights, and (3) that the abolition of slavery, institution of full civil rights for women, and the U.S. laws against every form of discrimination are all the result of founding the nation on natural law. Research Strategies (1) I will gain on overview of natural law by reading encyclopedia articles about it. (2) Using the training in the library research class, I will search NYIT’s library holdings electronically. I hope to find books, journal articles, newspaper articles, and perhaps diaries by founding citizens such as John Adams, his wife Abigail Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. I will also look for video documentaries. (3) After discovering what is available through NYIT, I will talk to a librarian to help me access and evaluate my potential sources. (4) Possibly I will also use Google Scholar, other libraries, and websites like nytimes.com for more books, articles, and visual media. Research Documents Armitage, David.

New York: New York University Press, 2008. Conclusion: The United States of America has a strong human rights record because it is founded on rights guaranteed by natural law. Understanding our heritage of natural law is important because these freedoms can be taken away if we do not maintain the beliefs on which they are established. My paper shows the importance of natural law to our nation by tracing its history up to the nation's founding and through the centuries since. ...

Research Proposal: drinking age, legal and why has America had so many problems with
underage drinking?

Drinking and drinking age have been issues of debate for very many years. This item of
discussion has not come to the limelight in the recent years, but instead, it is an old issue. The
government has taken mixed stands on the issue praising and scrutinizing the problems
surrounding it through putting several matters to justify or criticize the rationale of each
argument. Heavy drinking among the college and university students has been on the rise, and
the attention of everyone from stakeholders to the general public getting attracted to the issue.

This paper proposes to research on the issue of drinking age, and the legal issues
surrounding the drinking age in the United States of America. It will look at the possible
implications of any alteration to the right time of drinking. e.g., reducing the age further down.
