Grading Rubric Case Analysis – Team 20 points

1. Introduction

2. Parties [Identify the plaintiff and the defendant] Good. 1 point

3. Facts [Summarize only those facts critical to the outcome of the case] Summarize the

important facts don’t recite all of them. There must be enough facts so I can tell

what’s going on. Good. 1 point *Robin

4. Procedure [Who brought the appeal? What was the outcome in the lower court(s)?]

Good. 1 point

5. Issue [Note the central question or questions on which the case turns] Good 3 points


6. Explain the applicable law(s). Use the textbook here. The law should come from the

same chapter as the case and in some cases form the case itself. Remember that law

can be either Statutory Law or Case Law. Be sure to use citations from the textbook

or from the case including page numbers. Good. 6 points

7. Holding [How did the court resolve the issue(s)? Who won?] Good 1 point *Kyle

8. Reasoning [Explain the logic that supported the court's decision] Good. 7 points

9. Interesting Fact: Do significant research outside of the book and demonstrate that

you have in a very obvious way. This refers to research beyond the legal research.

This involves something about the parties or other interesting related area. Show

something you have discovered about the case, parties or other important element

from your own research. Be sure this is obvious and adds value beyond the legal

reasoning of the case. This must be a separate Slide. Good *Charles

10. Wrap up with a Conclusion slide. This should summarize the key aspects of the

decision and also your recommendations on the court's ruling. Good.

11. Include citations on the slides and a reference slide with your sources. Use APA style

citations and references. Good. *Laurein

Total = 20

Saturday Breaking up work: separate into equal parts, rotate each week

Wednesday: Compile work and review progress (Wed-Saturday complete slides)

Following Saturday: Compile Presentation and review, Repeat

The assignment should consist of a presentable and entertaining presentation (Power Point

or other medium) or a Word Document containing  graphics and video links. It should

include a summary of the relevant facts, the law, judicial opinion and answer the case questions.

All that is necessary for an understanding of the case is important and required.

The report must go beyond the discussion of the problem posed in the textbook, to achieve a

superior grade. Do research outside the textbook- this must include research outside the case

citation such as the Lexus-Nexis in the DeVry Library or, do research on the

parties and circumstances of the case itself and incorporate some audio-visual modality as a part

of the case analysis, something about one of the parties, as well as some background contained in

the legal opinion. Doing significant research outside the textbook is essential.  Research sources

that you cite can NEVER be Wikipedia, a news site or a Google search result. They MUST be

recognized legal research sources as found in the University Library Lexus/Nexis Database.

Case Analysis

Each week your team will locate a case using Find Law or another research tool and obtain legal

research on the selected case. Your team should also research the circumstances surrounding the

case (i.e. the other party, any news that may have been created or any other pertinent

information). Each week a new case will be found by the team.

Here are the subjects to be covered each week:

 Week 2- Constitutional Issues, International Law issues or Administrative Agency issues

 Week 3- Torts, Product Liability or Environmental law issues

 Week 4- Contracts, Real Property or Intellectual Property issues

 Week 5 - Employment law issues

 Week 6 - Criminal, anti-Trust or debtor-creditor issues

 Week 7 - Dispute issues (such as meditation), business associations or securities issues.

Week 8 is the time to deliver a final Course Project which will include an introduction, in-depth

analysis of each weekly case as described above using the same format as the weekly case

analysis assignments.

The Course Project should wrap up with a summary that ties together some element of

commonality through the 6 cases selected and uses the elements studied in week 1 on critical

thinking, introduction to law, the American legal system and ethics and social responsibility.
