Claims of Policy - Academic Option

Created by Jon LeBaugh

A claim of policy is an essay consisting of an argument that certain conditions should exist. These essays advocate adoption of policies or courses of action because problems have arisen that call for a solution. Defending a claim of policy often involves first convincing the audience that a problem exists, considering opposing arguments, and providing specific data that shows the benefits of the claim.
