Fro example, civil law, criminal law, constitutional law, administrative law, international law in a global economy, torts, intellectual property and internet law, immigration and labor law, contract performance, breach, and remedies, etc. Summarize the points of the articles, demonstrate how the articles connect to as many laws, policies, or cases that we have studied, and formulate an opinion on the issue. You can use the basic steps in legal reasoning. (1, What are the key facts and issues? 2, What rules of law apply to the case? 3, How do the rules of law apply to the particular facts and circumstances of this case? 4, What conclusion should be drawn?)
