Written Assignment: Laws on Domestic Abuse
In a 3- to 5-page paper, identify one federal and one state law (in your state) that were created in response to the problems of domestic abuse. Explain each law in detail and its overall effects on the issues of domestic violence. For each of the two laws (statutes) you find, provide two examples of documented domestic violence cases that would fall under the purview of those laws.
NOTE: This Assignment will require outside research. Use at least two credible resources beyond the text material for each of the two laws and one credible resource beyond the text for each case (six total resources beyond the text), and discuss how you evaluated the credibility of the resources used. All resources should be beyond the text material. All outside resources used should have been published within the past 5 years.
You may consult the Library, the internet, the textbook, other course material, and any other outside resources in supporting your task, using proper citations and references in APA style. Discuss how you evaluated the credibility of the resources used.
