For the Project 1 assignment, find a news event about an individual that illustrates the rule of law in the United States. In a 500-word essay: 1. explain the person and the event (50 points); 2. describe how the rule of law applies (50 points), and 3. discuss whether you agree or disagree with the outcome (25 points). The project focuses on the fact that we are a nation of laws and that no person is above the law, no matter how powerful or well known, including elected officials and celebrities. In grading your projects, I’ll focus on: 1. How well you describe your person and event. 2. How the rule of law specifically applies to your case. 3. How persuasive you are. 4. Your writing style, including grammar, spelling, punctuation and details.
