week 5: Case analysis
Each student will write and submit a short paper. Your response should be well-rounded and analytical and should not just provide a conclusion or an opinion without explaining the reason for the choice. For full credit, you need to use the material from the week’s lectures, text, and/or discussions when preparing your analysis.
The assignment should consist of a Word Document, approximately 2-pages in length. Your paper should follow the case brief format as outlined in Modules>Introduction and Resources>Case Analysis – Overview, and include a summary of the relevant facts, the law, judicial opinion, etc.
Research the case using the case citation in the DeVry Library under databases (select – HeinOnline), FindLaw.com, and other legal sources. Research the parties and circumstances of the case itself.
