The following is a simulation exercise. Let us assume that you're part of the law firm of Estes, Estes and Gershon. As one of my associates, I need to find out the "particulars" on a number of cases cited below.
Write a ten - twelve page brief (double spaced). Please follow the formula used in class:
1. Problem Defined
should include a cover page. Please see last page for example of cover format. Please list legal citations at the very end. After completing the brief, please make one photocopy.
Please use the original court opinion(s) to support of your brief.
Please use compendiums within the library and/or photocopy the portions applicable to your case. Remember there will be other students also needing access. Most of the assigned cases be found
