350-700 Word Essay Describing The Murder Trial Process Of Rapper Christopher Wallace (The B.I.G Case)

Class, below is the template that you can use to assist in writing your essay. You may copy and paste the portions below, omitting explanatory information provided within the parentheses and place into your own Word document

Remember this assignment focuses on what would have happened in a criminal case, as there was never a criminal case presented for this murder. Therefore, in this assignment you will be providing hypothetical information as to what you believe would occur at a real criminal trial.

The assignment emphasizes Critical Thinking. That means you are to use the literature as your basis of knowledge as to what would have happened or been said at a real criminal trial.

Within the unit, you are provided with several sources or references regarding this murder case. Naturally, you can also review as many additional sources as needed to assist you with the background information to ensure you understand what happened.

Do not forget to include your separate cover sheet and separate reference page for the assignment. Also, remember that providing a reference page is not the same as citing the literature, which you must do for this assignment in order to support your discussion. Use your citations from the literature to explain and discuss the various roles and purposes of opening statements, etc.
