For this assignment you will now be writing a legal memo, which could also be called a “legal argument” “legal paper” or any of several other names. This is just a paper like many others you have written but instead of giving me information on, for example, the major generals of the Civil War, you are giving me an overview of the applicable law and also your legal opinion based on the facts and laws.
