Annotated case
Case Brief


All case law contains essentially the same parts. Case briefs can be written in slightly different formats, but this is the format you will use for purposes of this assignment:
Case Citation
Procedural History
Rules of Law
Use the sample case brief in this Unit as your guide to setting up your case brief.
Locate the following case in NexisUni: Bethel Sch. Dist. v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675 (1986). [Friendly Warning: if you try to pull a version on another site you most likely won’t see the official page numbers appear throughout the case. Make sure you pull up the actual case from the official reporter in NexisUni or you won’t see the proper page numbers that you need for proper legal citation.]
Print out the case. This is your working copy for you to “annotate.”
Read the case and annotate it. Annotating is a tool used for close reading. Here are some commonly used annotations:
Holding= H (I usually star or highlight the holding in a case.)
Procedural History=PH
Rules of Law=RL
The more you practice; these terms will become second nature to you. Don’t give up! This takes time and practice.
Correct grammar, sentence structure, and spelling should be used.
The brief should use the Bluebook style for legal citations.
Other formatting requirements met: Word document, double-spaced, 12-pt. font, 1-inch margins.
Your case brief is written in paragraph form. No bullets or lists. Do not copy and paste text without quotation marks and proper citations for quoted or paraphrased matter.
