Author Comments

I wrote this paper during my penultimate semester in college. The essay originally began as a short response paper, approximately four pages in length, for one of my politics classes. I had always been self-conscious about my writing, but after receiving encouragement from my professor, I chose to expand upon that paper for my final project that semester. I feel that this assignment made me into a more confident and thoughtful writer, which has benefited me greatly during my legal studies.
