> Research the case law and statutory law behind
> self-defense and the use of deadly force. What does the case law
> reveal that an average citizen can use in terms of self-defense and
> deadly force? How is that different than a law enforcement officer?
> Provide a detailed analysis of the case law where the court’s have
> grappled with these issues. Focus primarily on the Supreme Court cases
> on this issue. Please use 12 font and one inch margins. Please include
> page numbers. Please double space. Recommend using topic and sub topic
> headings to organize your paper. Please include a reference page at
> the end of your paper where you list all the references used in your
> paper. It is fine for the total paper to be at 6 pages which would
> include title page, abstract and references. That being said, if the
> paper is 6 pages in length and then another few pages with those items
> – that is fine too. What I’m really looking for in the paper is
> graduate level cohesive writing where you research and analyze primary
> legal sources such as case law, statutes and the US Constitution.
> Please use the Bluebook or APA citation format to list your
> references, depending on whether you are a Legal Studies student or
> not. Please remember to USE FOOTNOTES!! Footnotes are sequentially
> numbered starting with 1. No two have the same number even if they
> refer to the same source. Please also include a
> reference section at the end where all sources are listed in proper
> Bluebook format. 1. Write an introduction, which clearly identifies
> the topic of your report and the issues, which you seek to illuminate.
> The introduction should include the thesis or basis of your report,
> and a very preliminary overview of the evidence you will use to
> support it. Finally, the introduction should include a statement that
> identifies what your paper contributes to our understanding of the law
> of Homeland Security (in other words, why is the topic of your report
> important?). 2. The body of your report should be dedicated to support
> your thesis with claims gleaned from your research (into what others
> have written on the topic; data that you have gathered), readings from
> the course text, discussions, and/or case law, law review articles.
> Please cite your references at the end of your paper in full Bluebook
> format. 3. Conclude your report by recapitulating your thesis and
> explaining in greater detail the significance of your findings. If you
> would like, include in your conclusion some questions or claims about
> the topic and/or specific which you’ve written. If you believe more
> research needs to be done on your topic, be specific about what kind
> of research and how you think it ought to be done. My college is AMU
> if you need to read the rubric for this assignment.
