How To Brief A Case, created by Christopher Pyle, 1982 and revised by Prof. Katherine Killoran, Feb. 1999Lloyd Sealy Library, John Jay College of Criminal Justice


A nice breakdown on how to brief a case (not to be confused with writing a legal brief for the court) for paralegal and law students. I would add “judgment” at the end of the steps – the decision made by the court (e.g., affirmed, reversed and remanded, etc.).  If you are interested in legal writing and have never learned how to brief a case, I recommend it. It will help you learn how to identify the key facts of the case and how the court applied those facts to the law to reach its ruling. -CCE
