CITATION FORMAT: For both outline and final paper, use any reasonable citation and
bibliographical format, including footnotes in law review style, or references in American
Psychological Association or Chicago Manual of Style with in-text parenthetical
citations. You may use another format if I approve it in advance. However, be sure to cite
consistently, and to cite all sources appropriately and give me a page reference (pinpoint
