1. A title? Your thesis statement should suffice I guess. Those awesome
titles are just for the embellishments, and I don't think you'll need it if it's just for topic selection.
2. Try to read Article VIII (Judiciary), read on how justice is administered in the Philippines. Also its methods of handling cases, proceedings and rule-making powers. Then read Article III (Bill of Rights) and/or possibly Human Rights Laws. Now see if the Constitutional provisions are visible, followed and completely supplement the rights of those involved.
Again, You need more books. And as what our professors tell us in class, don't focus on the topic
, but on the issues
. Some possible issues for your topic:
-People going to jail without due process.
-Judiciary proceedings and trials taking a damn long time.
-Passing judgements despite the lack of substantial pieces of evidence.
-issue of "law not applying to all" (marginalization of rich and poor)
And if you haven't thought of a 3rd topic, then simply make a "trash" topic only for filler. And make your favored topic among those three appear better-looking, so that it would have the highest chance of getting picked by your adviser. Good luck!
And btw, I'm a senior lol on the verge of graduation
