I am asking what ideas do you or class mates have about what different sources I can use to find out my research proposal. I have used the internet for some resources and the library. I’m asking do you think I should interview a lawyer in Roberson County and record and add it to my portfolio. Can you give me any other suggestion that I can do to make my portfolio a great one please comment on this  blog.

I’m having some what good of finding information on my research proposal, but the thing about it is that some resources are not credited and that some of information if fague and really does not give me a lot of things to talk about.
