GBL 323 Project
We need to find an article which
is related with what we learned in class
1. The articles must be relevant
to our course study applying to law and ethics.
• That means each article must
have something to do with business law and ethics.
• You may choose a topic from
administrative law (so long as it is part of business law) even if we do not
plan to cover in the class. For example, you could choose a topic relevant to
labor law, securities regulation, or federal trade regulation.
2. What is an article critique? A
critique is not (only) a criticism. A critique is a specific style of essay in
which you identify, evaluate, and respond to an author’s ideas/writing, both
positively and negatively. Therefore, as part of your assignment as it relates
to the article(s) review (critique) you should address the following:
• Identify: • What is the
article’s background and purpose?
• What is the main idea (the main
argument) that the article is communicating?
• Evaluate: • How convincing is
the argument? • What does the argument assume?
• How useful or applicable is the
• Respond: • What is your
assessment of the article?
• What issues does it raise? •
What issues does it avoid?
3. Describe the legal topic
covered in the article(s), explain its relevance to our course study, and
evaluate its appropriateness in today’s business legal environment.
4. Provide a brief history of the
legal topic’s development and its effects on business.
5. Define critical terms
presented clearly, precisely, and accurately.
6. Explain, with as much detail
and insight as you can muster, the specific ethical issues, principles, and
concepts that inform your understanding of your chosen topic.
