Order Details 1)
You must have a clear logical structure – intro, conclusion, 4-5 sections, preferably with section headings.
2) The intro must say why your topic is important, introduce your question, and then explain how each section will help you answer your question. Thus, your reader will be confident that you have a strong structure and strong argument.
3) I want a bibliography and footnotes – the bibliography will have one section for books and article – at least 30 – and another for web-sites, with the names of the sites. I expect at least 100 footnotes. Footnotes are the norm for English legal scholarship; “Harvard” is used in the social sciences. Do not use end-notes.
4) Choose a referencing style – ie EJIL – and stick to it. Consistency is important. Remember that your references help your reader to find the source quickly. You can shorten footnotes after a first full footnote by using last name of author, year, page number
5) You will save a lot of time and trouble if you compile your bibliography in your chosen style as you research and read – alphabetical by last name of author, without numbers or bullet points. You can then copy and paste into your footnotes in due course. You will find it very helpful to try to encapsulate in a paragraph or so what each scholar is saying as you research and read.
6) Your bibliography contains everything you have actually read. I can spot inflation! But I tend to look at the biblio first, to see what you have been reading – and whether you have read outside the recommended texts.
7) Use footnotes for sources only, not for additional text. All argument and discussion should be in the text of the essay. Footnotes and bibliography are NOT included in the word count. Please give the exact word-count at the start of the essay.
8) Avoid quotations of more than a few lines. Do not set out the text of instruments and other documents. You are losing space you could use for your own discussion.
9) You should aim to discuss the scholars you have been reading, using short quotations if you need to, and compare and contrast – let your own voice be heard too. My teachers are interested in what the thinks
10)My teacher marks on how organised is the material.
