The goal of legal writing is to communicate information about the law clearly. The type of communication can affect the style of how the information is communicated. Legal professionals communicate with clients and other members of their legal team and profession through different forms of writing, such as client letters, legal memoranda, or e-mail. You are asked to prepare a short office memo that provides an explanation of how legal writing differs from academic writing. In this memo, you should also identify the main types of legal writing, including a brief description of the purpose of each type of writing. For this course, we will be using the Bluebook style for formatting and legal citation. There are resources included in this weeks readings to introduce you to how to format citations for specific types of reference sources. Length: 1-2 pages, formatted as an office memo, with reference sources cited References: Include a minimum of three scholarly resources. Your memo should demonstrate an understanding of the different types of legal writing, as well as the differences between legal writing and academic writing. Your response should reflect graduate-level writing and BLUEBOOK standards for formatting and citation. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Topic 1: listen to a 2019 or 2020 Supreme Court oral argument online.

This week we are learning about the complexities surrounding Asylum law. In order for asylum to be permitted, the persecution claimed by the applicant must be based on one of the five protected grounds (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion). Claiming persecution based on membership in a social group or based on political opinion can be quite tricky, but is quite popular. Mexico: Record numbers of Mexican nationals are coming to the U.S. border, seeking asylum based on the pervasive gang and drug cartel violence in Mexico. Remember that in order to be granted asylum, the claim of persecution must be based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The persecution must be inflicted by the government or by individual(s) the government is not able or is unwilling to provide protection from. While there may be a legitimate argument that the Mexican government is unable to adequately protect its citizens from gang violence, the persecution nonetheless MUST be based on one of the five grounds. In your forum post this week, please answer the following questions: Should we grant asylum for those who are fleeing from the violence and instability in their home country? When does the violence reach a level that reaches the protection of asylum? Who sets the threshold? Based on the above, what protected ground of asylum could these Mexican nationals claim they fit under? Explain the law. What do immigration officials do when an alien comes to a port of entry claiming fear of returning to their home country? What should they do when an alien is encountered within the U.S. and when questioned, claims fear of returning to their home country? Finally, do you feel the recent claims from Mexico undermine legitimate asylum claims from other countries?
n this assignment, youll need to decide whether Paula Plaintiff has any legal claims arising from a series of unfortunate events. After reading the scenario, answer the questions that follow, making sure to fully explain the basis of your decision. Paula Plaintiff is shopping at her favorite store, Cash Mart. She is looking for a new laptop, but she cant find one she likes. Then, realizing that she is going to be late for an appointment, she attempts to leave the store, walking very fast. However, before she can leave, she is stopped by a security guard who accuses her of shoplifting. Paula, who has taken nothing, denies any wrong doing. The officer insists and takes Paula to a small room in the back of the store. The guard tells Paula that if she attempts to leave the room she will be arrested and sent to jail. At this point, the guard leaves the room. Paula is scared and waits in the room for over an hour until the manager comes in and apologizes and tells Paula that she is free to go. About this same time, Geoffrey Golfer is hitting golf balls in his backyard. Geoffrey decides to break out his new driver and hits a golf ball out of his backyard into the Cash Mart parking lot. The golf ball hits Paula Plaintiff on the head and knocks her unconscious just as she is leaving the store. What types of legal claims could Paula make against Cash Mart and Geoffrey?

If Paula files a negligence claim against Geoffrey will she file in civil court or criminal court? Explain the difference between civil court and criminal court.
In chapter 1, there is a quote, Economists would say that bits, unless controlled somehow, tend to be non-exclusive (once a few people have them, it is hard to keep them from others) and nonrivalrous (when someone gets them from me, I dont have any less). In a letter he wrote about the nature of ideas, Thomas Jefferson eloquently stated both properties. If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. Do you agree or disagree with the quote? Use an example, like another quote, to explain your point of view. To gain all the points: Posts well developed assignment that fully addresses and develops all aspects of the task.

Provide a clear definition of the exclusionary rule. Describe how the exclusionary rule might influence the behavior of police officers, detectives, and prosecutors. Recall the scenario in last week’s discussion. Assume that Chip told police that he stashed the bodies but was only doing what Bob, the owner, told him to do. If he revealed this information under questioning, but without having been given his Miranda rights, how would that impact the case? Do you think it is more important for judges to always enforce the exclusionary rule, or should exceptions be made so that violent criminals are not set free despite being guilty? Explain your reasoning. LAST WEEK: Bob Helmsley is a respected community leader and the owner of the Helmsley Crematorium in Amarillo, Texas, that services Texas, Southern Oklahoma, and the northwest region of New Mexico. He is the former coroner in Potter County, Texas, and his wife Susan is a respected member in the community. Susan is the bookkeeper at the crematorium, but neither she nor Bob have any day-to-day contact with business operations, which is currently run by Chip, a long-time family friend and business partner. An anonymous tip on three separate occasions was reported to the Potter County Sheriffs Department that skeletal remains were seen on the Helmsley property; however, when investigated by the authorities, nothing ever resulted. One day, an unannounced but routine inspection by the Texas Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers revealed a shed stacked with human bodies and an open grave with bodies scattered about the property. There were so many bodies; a federal disaster team was dispatched to aid the state in identifying the remains. Bob, Susan, and Chip were arrested, and ultimately, the investigators discovered four hundred uncremated bodies.
