Thesis Law and Legal Definition
Thesis is a document submitted as a requirement for an advanced academic degree. A thesis consists of the results of research on a specific topic prepared by a candidate. Usually a thesis document advances a new point of view resulting from research. A thesis is usually implied rather than stated directly. A thesis statement declares what the research holder believe and what s/he intend to prove.
A valuable thesis must:
contain an arguable point with which people could reasonably disagree;
takes a stand and justifies the discussion presented;
tackle a subject that could be adequately covered in the format of the project;
be specific and focused;
assert conclusion based on evidence;
provide the reader with a map to guide him/her through the work;
anticipate and refutes the counter-arguments; and
avoid vague language, first person.
