Your final research paper assignment is to write 6-9 double-spaced pages on any topic in the field of legal analysis or conflict resolution. Your research paper cou discuss a topic that we’ve covered this semester that you’d like to delve into more deeply (e.g.. the effect of gender on negotiation performance) or a topic that we haven’t discussed this semester (e.g., recent U.S.
Supreme Court cases
ted to arbitration). The purpose of this assignment is for you to find a
topic that you’re genuinely interested in learning more about. and then locating source materials
– books, articles, newspaper pieces, etc. – so that you can truly gain a comprehensive understanding of the topic.
Papers must be Times, size 12, normal (1*) margins, double-spaced. Absolutely no late papers will be accepted or graded. If you do not submit your final paper by this deadline, you will automatically receive a ZERO for this assignment. Do not submit papers with typos, emoticons, or incorrect grammar.
Write a paper that’s interesting and engaging – that teaches the reader something about dispute resolution.
You will be evaluated based on the depth of your research; the quality of your writing and presentation; and your mastery of the topic. Include a bibliography showing what you have read and cited. Quote directly from sources, where appropriate. See if you can identify the most important thinkers/scholars/writers in your particular area. Generally speaking, almost any area has four or five academic “leaders” who have written extensively on the subject.
What is a “good topic? You’ll know it when you see it. An interesting research topic might be, for example, “The Use of Arbitration in Baseball.” A “bad topic” is often a subject that is either too broad (e.g.. “Negotiation”) or too narrow (e.g.. “The Negotiation of the Lease Between Party A and Party B in November 1999*). You want to ensure that there will be enough scholarly material to draw upon. Feel free to ask me whether your topic sounds like a “good” one.
