I like putting words together, whether they're short stories or research and reports. What kind of job would allow me to do more of that? [more inside]

I was wondering if any mefiers could help advise me on potentially choosing a certain module for my llb (undergraduate law) option.
I was thinking of choosing the legal writing and advocacy option, but I am not sure.
Has anyone any idea of what is usually expected in a module such as this? It strikes me as an option very similar that provided in American law schools. How are these usually assessed? The naive bone in me is entertaining the prospect of a slightly less harsh marking criteria compared to the substantive core modules I shall be studying as well; but I could be wrong.
My course book mentions the break down of the module as follows:
Legal Writing and Advocacy:
- Reflective Learning Journal (40%)
- Response to Consultation Document (30%)
- Oral Presentation 1 - (15%)
- Oral Presentation 2 - (15%) [more inside]

This is a bit of a follow up to this question
. I'm contemplating a small comics project staring a fictionalised version of HP Lovecraft (something I've done before but thsi will be slight higher profile) and the title will be something along the lnes of "H.P. Lovecraft's World of Weirdness". Is the use of his name in the title like that, which might imply some kind of authorship or endorsement or somesuch, likely to bring the Lovecraft estate down on me like a ton of bricks?

I'm interested in getting a law passed. The details of said law are unimportant at this point. My question is where to start. How does one write legalese? Are there any sources (electronic or print) that would help or organizations that help grass roots movements?

The IMDB entry for Donnie Darko
says: "The script initially called for Donnie's fantasies to be about Alyssa Milano. This had to be changed however when Richard Kelly was denied the legal rights to reference her in this manner." Does anyone know what laws are operating in this situation?
