Know The Process Common knowledge: each state has a set of rules to abide by when it comes to their court system and how to deal with criminals. Each state is also different from the last. There is no way to truly compare the states and their laws except for the fact that the federal laws are supposed to also serve as guidelines for states to base their laws from. So for my informative essay I chose to explain how the great state of North Carolina worked when it comes to convicting a criminal.

    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.
