- one source that address diversity
issue such as race, ethnicity, gender, class, disability,
religion, or sexual orientation.
articles, articles from popular press and websites, Do NOT count
toward the minimum number of sources although
I do encourage you to include them and will take them into consideration
with considering the grade for the annotated bibliography.
Your annotated bibliography must include
relevant primary sources on laws and
statutes and regulations and cases. To the extent that relevant law is
not available you should note that in your introduction.
bibliography should be organized using the following headings as
- Introduction (at least 1000

introduction should be at least 1000 words.
For each reading, your annotation should include: citation,
description, critical comment and total number of pages read.
Your citation should be in bluebook format
except do not use abbreviations.
Each annotation should
be between 200 to 300 words . It should include a synopsis of the author's
primary arguments and a critique of those arguments. It should
include whether the source contains a bibliography. Be
aware simply paraphrasing the article is consider plagiarism
and will result in a failing grade for the course. Your annotations
should be your summary in your own words.
The grade earned will be based on
- quantity of readings
- the relevancy of the readings to your topic
- the comprehensiveness of your cites (such
statutes, cases, law review)
