Case Brief Assignment

To find cases for this assignment, I recommend searching in LexisNexis.

If you have a particular case in mind, you can search for it by citation number or by the parties involved. If you don't have a particular case in mind (or don't know its specific information) you can search by keyword instead.

A guide to the common sections in case documents in legal documents is available here.
