Final Project (Jane’s Asylum Case)
Course outcome addressed in this Assignment:
PA401-3: Compose legal documents.
GEL-1.1: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard American English.
Your Final Project, which you have been working on all term, is due this week.
The Final Project builds upon the research work you have been working on throughout this course. Your Assignment is to work through the IRAC process to identify and prioritize legal issues that must be researched in the hypothetical case involving Jane Doe. Once you have identified the most relevant legal issues you must devise a suitable research plan and ultimately conduct the research. After research is complete you will write a brief of one of the cases you identified as most pertinent to the case, and write a legal memorandum of law regarding the case based upon your research results.
Overall the Assignment is interesting and well done. The suggestion is to provide a context for the leadership outcome. If they were writing the case to identify trends in illegal immigrant cases or taking the initiative to identify particular issues for asylum of minors. Something to indicate leadership to give this context in the planning and prioritization.
The Final Project poses a hypothetical set of facts for you to research. Your Assignment is to identify the research issues, perform the research, write a brief of one of the cases you discover in your research, and write a legal memorandum regarding the case based upon your research results.
Write a case brief and an internal memorandum of law based on the case information provided in the Unit 2 Project Assignment. To complete this Project, you will have to perform the legal research, analysis, and writing required to prepare a comprehensive internal memorandum of law.
Please double-space your answers and use complete sentences in well-organized paragraphs. Save your Project as a Word document. You are expected to support with details any conclusion that you draw from the hypothetical situation. Also, fully define and explain all legal elements and concepts associated with your analysis.
You have been working on the Final Project throughout the course. Each unit included a required Project submission, and you will now submit the final draft of the Project.
TipsIdentify the issues that need to be researched. Don’t get sidetracked by collateral issues. Your Assignment is to research the issues regarding who can file a petition on behalf of Jane, who is a minor. There may be unrelated issues, but if they do not pertain in some way to the filing of a petition for asylum, they are outside the scope of your Assignment.Assume Jane is a normal 14-year-old minor. Assume also that John and Anne have both retained complete parental rights over Jane, and that there is no prior evidence of abuse by either parent.You will need to research both case law and federal statutory law, since this is a case involving the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
