From Prof Quinn:

"I will ask you to choose a regulatory, legislative, international organizational, or judicial issue, here or abroad, to track for the semester.  Please send me a paragraph note by the 2nd  with the topic and some notes about the background.   This will give me a chance to respond if I have concerns.

Here are a few guidelines for the final paper.  I will want a five-page paper, of no more than 1200 words of text (word count please).  Please provide an overview of the legislative, executive branch, or court activity in the area of your research, with your analysis of what political economic forces are at work.  Please make a forecast about the likely outcome of the events.  When relevant, I expect you to use class readings as part of your analysis.  Remember to tell me/us what political and economic forces are at work!; who the parties at interest are!; what laws are relevant!

In all cases, please use standard bibliographic practices.  You may use either point cites (e.g., Jones 1995, p. 17) or footnotes.  Full bibliographic entries are required in the reference section, which need not count toward the page limit.  Charts, tables, graphs, and so forth are welcome, and are to be included as part of the page limit.

The final results of the paper will be presented to your classmates in class..  Please do not miss the presentations of your colleagues.  An “initial” presentation of your topics and question – one minute each!".
