Knowledge Base: At this point, candidates will be ready to develop a knowledge base on the
topic. To do so, candidates will conduct reviews of case law and other literature on the topic.
Case Law Review: Candidates will review four court cases on the selected topic chosen from
the Moral and Legal Issues and Collaboration assignments, applying the courts decision to how

It might be helpful to use the rubric components as headings in the submitted assignment to
make sure components are not overlooked.
