The topic is defamation. Use the 3 cases of New York Times vs Sullivan, Garrison vs Louisiana, and Beauharnais vs Illinois. APA style and correct APA citation
Below are the requirements for my essay. I would like to receive it Wednesday if at all possible. I also would like my topic to be on defamation. Once contacted I can send you the specific cases. Please let me know what you need from me!!
You must write in one of the following five areas: student expression, prior restraint, defamation, corporation’s 1stAmendment rights, or nude dancing.
At least 3 pages of text. No more than 4 pages. This is exclusive of citations, which means you must have a separate page of citations. APA is preferred (The most recent APA edition has some significant changes from the way you are used to citing. Know them.). Citation accuracy will count toward your final grade.
Times New Roman, 1-inch margins, 12-point font, no space between paragraphs.
You must cite at least 3 cases we discussed in class. For nude dancing, you are allowed to go outside the relatively few nude dancing cases we discussed.
You must site a secondary source that is scholarly in nature. This means academic journal articles and law review articles, along with books by people with advanced degrees (Ph.D. or J.D.). Book reviews do not count, even if they meet the other criteria. If you have a question about a citation, email me.
You must make an argument about the area of 1st Amendment law in which you are writing. That argument must be more than a normative judgment about a case or area of law.
Examples of arguments (not exhaustive):
Case X was decided this way by the Supreme Court. This case should have been decided another way for these reasons…
An area of law that has not been adequately addressed in this area of law (nd, se, pr, def, and corp) is X (A subset of law in your bigger area of law). When the Court does address it, it should decide in this way because…
There is currently a circuit split among the Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court should resolve this split in this way because…
Justice X has consistently ruled this way in this area of law. This way of addressing this area of law is judicially sound or unsound because…
In Case X the dissenting Justices argued Y, Y is better than the rationale of the majority decision because…
Not an argument (not exhaustive):
Justice X is my favorite justice.
Case X is awesome.
I think the First Amendment is the most important amendment.
I dislike this area of law.
This book is a bad book and has caused me to write a bad paper.
I couldn’t find any information on this therefore the Supreme Court has not decided it.
