February 1, 2010 – May 21, 2010 BA621 Business Law Lesson #2 Assignment #6 1) One of the basic elements in the Constitution is the separation of powers in the government. What ethical norm would guide the framers' thinking in creating a system with a separation of powers and a system of checks and balances? Clue: Consider what might happen if one branch of government became too strong. Both separation of powers and a system of checks and balances are vital to preserving the framers’ values of individual freedom from government interference. A written code establishes the rules of engagement for each party in government and creates a self-defense mechanism in each branch to prevent being overpowered by another. The efficiency of the government is the main cost, as new laws must often go through scrutiny of more than one branch before becoming law, which can be overly time-consuming in pressing situations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
