Question description

Law and Society Unit 7
Subject:Law
Category:American Law
Level:University
Deadline:2015-08-21 14:54


Task

Perceptions of the Legal Profession
In Unit 6, you learned that laws can have a significant impact on our community and legal system. Laws can be used to impose social change. That change can be for the better, though sometimes it can make things worse. Then in Unit 7, you saw that law can clearly be used for the worst possible motives — laws can sometimes be enacted to impose and even maintain inequality.

For this writing Assignment, you are going to find two specific events from history (U.S. history). The first example should be from distant history, and the second should be from the recent past (say, the last 10 years).

For each event, you need to (1) start with a law that was created to impose inequality. Conduct research to find out what was going on in society at that time, and how the law was created to impose this inequality on the community. Then you will need to (2) explain how events and/or the society changed. Explain how law was used to create social change and rectify the problems created by the initial laws. Finally, you will (3) incorporate into this analysis your assessment of multiculturalism (which we also addressed on our Discussion exercise). Based on your views and understanding of multiculturalism and diversity, how has this factored into the evolutionary process of these two events? Make sure to apply at least four of the seven actions which leads to multiculturalism, as identified in Caleb Rosado’s article (http://www.rosado.net/pdf/Def_of_Multiculturalism.pdf).

This project should be at least 4 pages (roughly 1000 words, excluding cover page and references). You will use the chapter reading and at least 1 outside authoritative source (in addition to the Rosado article) to help support your analysis.

In addition to fulfilling the specifics of the Assignment, a successful paper must also meet the following criteria:

Length of the paper should be 4 pages (900–1000 words), excluding cover page and references.
Viewpoint and purpose should be clearly established and sustained.
Assignment should follow the conventions of Standard American English (correct grammar, punctuation, etc.).
Writing should be well ordered,logical, and unified, as well as original and insightful.
Your work should display superior content, organization, style, and mechanics .
Appropriate citation style should be followed.

Content
For this writing Assignment, you are going to find two specific events from U.S. history. The first is from the distant history and the second should be from recent past (say, the last 10 years).
For each event, you need to 
(1) start with a law that was created to impose inequality. Conduct research to find out what was going on in society at that time, and how the law was created to impose this inequality on the community. 
Then you will need to (2) explain how events and/or the society changed. Explain how law was used to create social change and rectify the problems created by the initial laws. 
Finally, you will (3) incorporate into this analysis your assessment of multiculturalism (which we addressed on the Discussion Board exercise). Based on your views and understanding of multiculturalism and diversity, how has this factored into the evolutionary process of these two events?
This project should be at least 4 pages (roughly 1000 words, excluding cover page and references). 
You will use the chapter readings and at least 2 outside authoritative sources to help support your analysis.

Citation Style

Writing shows both internal citations in the body of the text as well as a proper list of references at the end of the paper, following APA or Bluebook format.
Citations appear consistently where needed, whether following quoted or paraphrased material in the text.
Note: In papers requiring secondary sources, failure to provide any citation does not result in a deduction of 10% from the paper, but will result in a failed paper and a plagiarism investigation.
