Assignment Details

The volume of criminal cases being tried across the United States, coupled with many agencies being understaffed, makes it challenging for agencies to stay current on legal issues. Recognizing the importance of staying current on legal issues, in this activity you will practice your research skills, while refining your presentation skills, by providing a summary of selected legal cases most associated with the criminal justice system. 

Your task is to prepare a presentation for delivery to local criminal justice stakeholders. This presentation will be a minimum of 22 slides. 

Complete the following for this assignment: 

  1. Use this Web site to locate 1 case involving each of the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, and 14th Amendments. You will locate a different case for each amendment, for a total of 5 different cases. The cases should have occurred in the last 10 years.  
  2. Create an introductory slide for your PowerPoint presentation to provide the reader your project’s purpose and scope.  
  3. Create 4 slides for each case example for each case that you have chosen:  
    • Slide 1 will provide the introduction (or basis) for the case  
    • Slide 2 will provide the summary of the case  
    • Slide 3 will provide the key legal question(s)  
    • Slide 4 will provide the decision 
  4. Create a conclusion slide for your PowerPoint presentation that wraps up the entire presentation and provides the reader with your thoughts on your findings about the state of law regarding these amendments.

Every student will have the opportunity to find 1 current event of interest during the course to discuss and connect to class material. In addition to demonstrating your ability to connect class material to real world events, the purpose of these papers is to encourage you to think critically and express your ideas.

This paper should be 2-3 pages long with double spaced Times New Roman 12 pt. font and normal one-inch margins. Although the paper will have three sections, it should be written as one cohesive essay. A rubric for the papers is posted on the Titanium website, but remember that it’s not just about your content, the quality of your writing is equally important. Writing effectively is one of the most important skills a college graduate can have so make sure you put effort into conveying your ideas clearly. To write this essay, do the following:

· 1)  Pick an article related to American government and politics from a reputable news source. Articles must be substantive (generally at least four paragraphs) and should not deal with sports, entertainment, or gossip. The article can address local, state, national, or global issues (as long as the U.S. is involved). If you have any questions about whether or not you have picked a good article, you can always e-mail me and ask! 

· 2)  Read the article thoroughly to make sure you fully understand what is being discussed. 

· 3)  Write a paragraph summarizing the article. This paragraph should indicate where the article is from and what the issues are (include any relevant factual information), but try to paraphrase in your own words instead of relying on direct quotes. Remember that any paraphrased material or direct quotes must be cited. There is a citation guide on the Titanium site that you can use as a reference. 

· 4)  Write a paragraph(s) connecting the article to class material. Does the article deal with a constitutional issue? An act of congress or the president? Does it relate to federalism? There are many issues which could relate to multiple chapters so pick the one that makes most sense to you and explain it in the context of what you are learning in class. For example, if it’s an executive order you could discuss what an executive order is, the historical role of the presidency etc. Just make sure you clearly connect the article to something you have learned in the class. Again, if you have any questions, you can always ask me! 

· 5)  Finally, write a paragraph(s) giving your assessment of the article. Make sure to include specific points about what you do and don’t agree with. Find at least one point in the article that you agree with and explain why you agree. Find at least one point in the article that you do not agree with and explain why you disagree. Avoid vague statements like “I think it’s good.” Why did you pick this article? What about the article interests you? Why do you think this issue is important? How has your opinion changed after reading this? Did the article make you want to take action? What would you say if you were trying to persuade a friend about this issue? What evidence would you use to convince them that you are right? 

· 6)  Proof read your paper! Read it out loud to yourself or a friend! Writing is a very important skill and you will be evaluated not just on the quality of your content, but the quality of your writing. These papers count for nearly 30% of your grade so make sure you put in enough time and effort to write clear, thoughtful papers.

Crisis Management Plan Part One

Overview: A crisis management plan (CMP) is a living document that is updated regularly as society, technology, culture, and organizations change. For example, in 1990, K–12 schools and universities would not have listed “school shootings” at the top of the list of possible threats to their organizations, if they considered school shootings at all. In 1999, Columbine High School experienced the worst high school shooting in U.S. history, and everything changed. Today, any educational institution that does not have a CMP that includes training for prevention, preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation of school shootings would be considered negligent in their responsibilities to their internal and external stakeholders.

To address crises, emergencies, and other threatening incidents, a CMP should be developed. This plan is created and updated by the crisis management team. The CMP typically lists the possible threats to an organization, the procedures to be implemented in the event of a crisis, and the internal and external stakeholders who are key to successful crisis management.

Submit your organization selection. It should include an ordered list of three organizations that you have selected for this project, along with an overview that introduces each organization, justifies how each organization meets the required criteria, and includes your rationale for selection. Your instructor will use this milestone submission to approve your organization selection for your final project. Therefore, it is important that you consider the final submission critical elements as you develop your list of organizations.

NOTE: You must choose an organization that does not already have a CMP in place.

Organization Selection Process

Identification of organizations that will meet the critical elements of the final project takes practice to ensure that you have fully considered the requirements. You can select an organization such as a private or nonprofit business, a school, or a government entity such as a township or county. To guide the selection of your potential three organizations, complete the following brainstorming tasks in order:

1. Review the critical elements outlined in the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric.

2. Spend 5–10 minutes brainstorming the names of organizations that you are interested in.

3. Review that list and identify only the organizations that are prone to crisis and that do not already have a CMP in place.

4. Once you have narrowed your list of organizations down to three organizations, number the organizations in order of preference (with your top choice

listed as number one).

5. For each of the organizations on your list, conduct research into the organization and its background.

For Milestone One, the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Organization

a) What are the names of the organizations you have selected? (Include Pomona College) 

b) Give a brief overview of each chosen organization, including the type of products and/or services it offers; the markets it targets, which may be

different in different countries; and the types of risks and crises it should prepare for, given its industry.

II. Criteria Verification: How does each organization meet the criteria for selection? Provide the source(s) for this information. (Include Pomona College)

III. Rationale: Explanation of your rationale for selecting this organization is essential, as it will be the focus of your work throughout the course. (Include Pomona College)

a) What is your rationale for selecting this organization? In particular, what is the past/present/future of the organization’s relationship with crisis?

b) What, in your opinion, makes it a good candidate for crisis consulting?


Guidelines for Submission: This milestone should be 2–4 Microsoft Word pages in length, with double spacing and one-inch margins. Information should be cited according to the rules of the latest American Psychological Association (APA) publication manual.


Risk Assessment And Contingencies, Pomona College
