1. Introduction - talk about the relationship of law and religion as a subject of interest - 200 words.

5. Conclusion - what conclusion can you give after all that you have come to know about this subject? 100 words.

The above outline should give you 1,100 words and using Times New Roman Font size 12, double-spaced, this should yield around 6-7 pages. With a cover page and a list of references you will be able to provide what your professor is asking you. Now I will give you some ideas. In each section. It is up to you to expand on them.
