Suggestion on Dos and Don’ts
- Start your Assignment early (Do not wait to start 48 hours before the Assignment is due).
- Remember to discuss, and elaborate in your paper.
- Discuss each question equally – for example do not write 2 pages for question 1, and 2 sentences for question 3.
- Your discussion and arguments and answers should be based on your research of the law and facts.
- I recommend that you put headings in your paper, so that it is clear where the answers to each question starts and stops.
- Check your SafeAssign score after you submit your paper and, if your score has not populated right away, check back. It is your responsibility to meet the SafeAssign requirements.
- Ensure you submitted the correct paper.
- Use the help provided to you such as Grammarly and the online tutor.
- Do not write an announcement in your paper, for example, “In this paper I will discuss the law on agency.” This may increase your SafeAssign score.
- Do not write about your personal experiences in your paper.
- Do not use irrelevant diagrams, charts or pictures in your paper.
Keep Calm and Good Luck!
