All Undergraduate Programs have a Writing Across the Curriculum Policy which means that you can expect to write at least 10 pages for each course. 30% of your grade will be determined by written assignments.
Written assignments can include, but are not limited to: discussion questions, case studies, essays, summaries, memos, lesson plans, journal entries, lab reports, project proposals, progress reports, and project reviews. The written assignment for this course will be found in this syllabus as well as on the course in Canvas.
Find a recent article (or articles) from scholarly, academic, professional, or news sources (including online sources) on a current and controversial subject matter that deals with legal issues and principles addressed in your Business Law I course and/or in the legal materials in your business law textbook.
Read the article carefully, consult your textbook for the legal principles, and prepare the following Article Review:
State purposes of review, title and source of article
State why you choose this article, its relationship to the course legal material, and the significance of the subject matter
- Article Summary
Briefly summarize the article
State the key “operative” facts, that is, those facts that are necessary for making legal determinations
- Legal Issues and Principles
State the relevant legal issues involved in the controversy (the “issues” are the legal questions that the courts or other government tribunals will decide)
State the pertinent legal principles that apply to the subject matter
- Application of Legal Principles to Controversy
Apply the legal principles to the controversy, make and state your legal conclusion, and explain your reasoning (making reference to key facts and legal principles)
If a legal decision has already been made by a court or other government tribunal, state whether based on the law you agree or disagree with the legal conclusion; and then explain your determination, and demonstrate your legal rationales and reasoning

Additional Instructions: The topic is of your choosing but it must be approved by the professor. The length of the article review should be approximately 10 pages (longer if you so desire), double-spaced, and in word processing format. Make sure your article review includes the official Huizenga School cover page with the author certification statement. Research (beyond the article and your textbook) is not required; however, additional research is permissible; but if you do use additional research make sure you have the materials included in the Bibliography section to the article review. Make sure you cite all your sources and cite and quote according to the APA style. The article review is due the last day of class; but early submissions are acceptable. The article review counts for 30% of your grade.
