Case Briefs for Law Students and Lawyers

Case briefs are vital to any law student’s education.  They are a summary of the facts of the legal case.  Each brief can be used in class and can help students study.  The formats can vary, but they must all include facts, procedure, issue, holding, reasoning and concurring/dissenting opinions.  Case briefs don’t have all of the facts, but they are a helpful guide for law students.  They can be useful in class or in preparing for an exam.  Students and lawyers are encouraged to submit case briefs!
Case Brief Summary submissions: $5 per case brief!
