The identification of a real-life topic preferably from your own society, the interrelationship between social forces and law/legal institutions/criminological phenomenon, and the application of concepts and theories covered in the class are the key elements of this critical writing assignment. You can choose your topic from any area of your interest (e.g., law enforcement, criminal law, public safety, environment, Indigenous issues, immigration, economy, or labour market) and then you will have to address why laws/policies/programs/institutions are created, in whose interests these were undertaken/enforced, whether they promote or hinder social equality or justice; and/or how citizens react towards those laws/policies/institutions. In doing so, you may analyze your topic by adding social factors or variables such as gender, religion, race, ethnicity, and class. Some examples of topics can include tough on youth crime, criminalizing sex work, anti-terrorism measures, legalization of marijuana, gun control, immigration ban, medical assistance in dying, and religious clothing ban.
