Legal Case Briefs

Each student will prepare carefully articulated and thoroughly researched legal briefs on assigned cases pertaining to the course material and assigned reading. It should be your work in your words. Each brief should be a one-page, single-spaced paper (Times New Roman font, 12 point type, one-inch margins) summarizing the case using the following format with at least one paragraph within the conclusion discussing the impact of this case and the decision of the case to administrators.  Label each section:

Citation: List the legal citation for the case. This should be the title of the paper.

Fact(s): Restate the legally relevant facts of the case. Discuss in detail what happened to get this case into the court system.

Issue(s): In one sentence, identify the question to be answered. To pick out the issue, think about who is arguing and what they are arguing about. An issue statement should include the sources of the law (for example, the First Amendment, the Texas Revised Code, IDEA, etc.), the parties involved, and the issue to be decided. For example, “Was the school district guilty of discrimination?” is not significantly detailed to meet the criteria of a good issue statement. “Does the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment prevent publics school districts from maintaining separate schools based on race?” contains the necessary components of an issue statement.

Ruling: What did the courts decide? What were the results? What was the final ruling for the case? 

Rationale: Why did the court make that particular decision? What precedent or social event brought the court to this particular decision? On what did the court base these answers?

Conclusion: How does this court decision relate to your life as an educator or administrator, and education in general? What does this ruling mean to our profession? How will our lives be altered by this decision? How will the students’ lives be altered by this decision?
