Preparing to Practice

Using Westlaw:

Using Georgia's state encyclopedia, can you find one good case on malice and its effect on willful, malicious, or unjustifiable acts in employment law.

Using Lexis:

Using the treatise Criminal Law Deskbook, find one good case that helps explain the nature and theory of plea bargaining as, "Plea bargaining is an essential component of the administration of justice. Properly administered it is to be encouraged. If every criminal charge were subject to a full scale trial, the states and the Federal Government would need to multiply the number of judges and Court facilities."
