Some Tips for Your Justice Paper 1. You don’t have to talk about every school of thought we’ve discussed. The main goal of this  paper is to argue your point of view. Yes, you should back up your claims with philosophical  arguments drawn from the readings—but don’t turn your paper into a laundry list of what  each philosopher that we’ve read would have said about the issue. Only incorporate those  readings/thinkers that are relevant and that you find compelling (or that help you formulate  and refute potential objections to your claims). At the same time, it should be clear to me from going through your paper that you (1) did  the readings (at least those readings relevant to your paper) and (2) thought about the  implications of the readings to the paper.  2. Be careful about making sweeping claims that are hard, if not impossible, to back up.
