Case Analysis Format Read and understand the case or question assigned. Show your Analysis and Reasoning and make it clear you understand the material. Be sure to incorporate the legal concepts of the chapter we are studying to show your reasoning. Dedicate at least one heading to each following outline topic: Parties [Identify the plaintiff and the defendant] Facts [Summarize only those facts critical to the outcome of the case] Procedure [Who brought the appeal? What was the outcome in the lower court(s)?] Issue [Note the central question or questions on which the case turns] Explain the applicable law(s). Use the textbook here. The law should come from the same chapter as the case. Be sure to use citations from the textbook including page numbers. Holding [How did the court resolve the issue(s)? Who won?] Reasoning [Explain the logic that supported the court’s decision] Conclusion: Each of these cases has a court ruling. Do you agree with the courts decision (why or why not?). From a Christian prospective, how does this decision impact Christianity and society? If the impact is negative, what recommendations would you make to overcome that impact? Do significant research outside of the book and demonstrate that you have in a very obvious way. This refers to research beyond the legal research. This involves something about the parties or other interesting related area. Show something you have discovered about the case, parties or other important element from your own research. Be sure this is obvious and adds value beyond the legal reasoning of the case. Dedicate a paragraph or 2 to each of the case question(s) immediately following the case, if there are any. Be sure to state and fully answer the questions in the assignment description. Quality in terms of substance, form, grammar and context. Be entertaining! Use graphs and tables to emphasize or enhance the case if you like. Wrap up with a Conclusion at the end of the Case Analysis. This should summarize the key aspects of the decision and also your recommendations on the court’s ruling. Include citations on the slides and a reference slide with your sources. Use APA style citations and references. Please follow the Case Analysis Format for each case.
