HOW TO BRIEF A CASE

 

FACTS: Pick out the relevant facts.  Tell what happened.  This should be about four sentences.  Who? What? Where? When?

ISSUE: What is the question that the case is asking?

RULE: What rule of law comes from this case?  This is usually an answer to the question in the issue.

APPLICATION: Why was the case decided this particular way?  Was it the facts?  Was it a case that came before it?

CONCLUSION: Who won.
