This is a position paper for an Environmental Law Master’s class and it must take a position based on the topic. My topic is “Deforestation should be banned in the United States” and I am against deforestation.

The instructions for this paper are as follows:

Students should use the 5th Edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) as a guide for citing references. Each paper must be double spaced, 12 point print, with Times New ROman font. Standard margins should be used. Students will choose their own topics but may elicit suggestions from others. Topics should relate to a current Environmental Law issue or controversy. Papers that argue the author’s central premise in a clear and logical fashion will receive high marks. Papers that fail to take a position (or fail to effectively argue the author’s central point) will not do well.

If there are any questions please feel free to contact me.
