Purposes of Criminal Laws
Prepare a paper explaining the purposes of criminal laws. Make sure that your paper, at a minimum, addresses the areas of the protection of public order, deterrence, and punishment.
The paper must be two to three pages in length (excluding the title and reference page), and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and sub-claims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
