The written paper assignment will ensure your familiarity with the existing body of criminal justice research and literature and enhance your ability to evaluate that material and your own research needs for proper alignment and feasibility. The project will include selecting a topic and reviewing and evaluating the relevant topical material with an eye toward furthering it to meet the goals of empirical research.
Your final paper must be no more than 1000 words (not including the cover page or references). I expect high quality, formal writing that reflects a thoughtful synthesis of the many principles we have covered and that exhibits a high level of professionalism. You need clear organization, lucid points, a formal tone, and good mechanics to do well.
