- Consider and asses this position: “The Rule of Law is needed to guarantee democratic freedoms. Without it, power tends to tyranny.” Is this claim true or false? Give reasons for your answer, and justify it with reference to the course readings. (TOPIC).
The essay should provide an answer to the direct questions asked, and should have an argument that explains and justifies your answer to the question.
This argument should draw upon the ideas and debates that have been discussed in the course – in the lecture notes, the readings, and the class discussions. You should also present and cite evidence for the conclusions that you draw from it.
Your evidence should be drawn primarily from scholarly and academic sources – and can include critical engagement with other scholars’ work, historical and contemporary examples drawn from your academic reading, or the course notes.
