A case brief is an organized, written summary of the essential elements of a judicial opinion. They are useful tools to assist you in learning to analyze the law. To brief a case, you must first carefully read the assigned cases to gain an overall understanding of the facts of the case, the decision rendered by the court, and the reasoning behind the court’s decision. You will summarize what the justices said in the case and not give your analysis of the decision. Write your brief as if you’re trying to explain your case to a classmate.

Be sure to reference all sources using APA style
