For each case you will need to answer the 5 questions Listed below
- You will need to have the following on each slide for each case you choose from 1975 to 2018.
- Facts: This section of your brief contains a statement of the relevant facts of the case, in your own words. Include the parties involved.
- Issues: The issue is the legal question the court is trying to answer in the case. Quite often the court will not state the issue explicitly. Phrase the issue as a question, as narrowly and accurately as possible.
- Judgment: This is the courts holding, i.e., what the court ultimately decided or for which party it ruled.
- This is your synopsis of why the court decided the case as it did. Describe in your own words
