Major: International Business
Here is the copy of my professors email and instructions:
Your paper should be on something that interests you, something that advances your understanding of your major and something that is topical. Believe me, if it interests you, it will easier to research and a lot more enjoyable for me to read. Advance notice -- I rigorously apply the University's Academic Honesty Policy as set forth in the Fogcutter Student Handbook and personally submit all papers to Turnitin.
Given our turbulent economic times there are many business law related topics to research, to mention just a few: insider trading. i.e Raj Gupta -- Goldman Sachs, Galleon Group; Apple-Samsung patent litigation; continuing international sovereign debt crisis; China-US currency dispute; 2012 aftermath of Ponzi schemes and related financial scams (updated Madoff
, Stanford, Hecksher et al.) ....
There are scores more topics. If you find yourself having difficulty finding a topic, pick up several copies of the Wall Street Journal -- its divided into discrete sections covering: general business news (A section); marketing (B); finance/investment (C); and personal finance (D). On Mondays there are rotating sections on technology, health and other specific topics.
I want a FIVE to SEVEN, 5 to 7, cinco to siete, V to VII,fem to sju, a?" to a?? and iiiii to iiiiiii, (get my point!) paper on a business law topic that interests you. I don't want an EIGHT TO ..., or the 35 page paper (I'm not kidding, 35 PAGES!) like I got a number of years ago from that famed BUS 301 Survivor, MBA graduate, and present Silicon Valley CPA Wizard, Mike Calonico, fondly known to his cyber friends as "Kdoggmc".
Papers submitted late receive are penalized as follows: One minute to one day late - 1 Letter Grade

You can use either the APA or MLA formats. Be certain to completely cite you authorities. Footnotes or endnotes are acceptable.
A "business law topic" is purposefully broad to allow you to write on a topic related to your particular major. Ideally, the paper will serve as a foundation for other endeavors undertaken in your area of emphasis.
I expect you to conduct legal research using the library, academic journals and reviews, publications e.g., Wall Street Journal, Barons, Bloomberg Business Week, Harvard Business Review, on-line resources and interviews. No WIKIPEDIA, Cheeseman, or Griffis lecture references or citations, I want original verifiable research and cited authorities. WIKIPEDIA is a good place to find source material, but do not cite the site.
Be creative. Thinking outside of the box, several years ago one enterprising Legal Scholar knocked on the front door of Roomy Khan's Atherton (San Mateo County) home. Mrs. Khan had just been named a possible suspect in the Galleon Hedge Fund federal insider trading case against Raj Rajaratnam, Galleon's founder. She later pleaded guilty and was an important witness against Rajaratnam. Our scholar briefly interviewed Ms. Khan regarding her involvement in the fraud -- the interview ceased the moment after Khan called her attorney to inquire if it was proper for her to talk to a BUS 301 Legal Scholar. Rajaratnam was convicted and sentenced to serve 11 years in Butler Federal Prison where Bernie Madoff
and his "cellie" Bubba reside.
The bottom line, if you select a topic that you are interested in, the research and paper will be enjoyable. OK, maybe not enjoyable but less painful for you and more interesting for me to read.
Chapter that have been cover in class such as: Personal Property, Real Property, Fraud, Pre-Nuptial Agreement, Contracts, etc.
