Class Notes
- Every week one case brief (1 page long) will be due.
- Textbook question answers and case brief should be on one word 
document. - If you submitted a full attempt and he is not satisfied, he will give you 24  hours to fix the issues and resubmit the assignment. Case briefs: 
- Format quiz is not due but available for our benefit. It can be used as a 
checklist. - Facts are substantive and procedural; both should be included.
- Copy & paste from case are allowed, no need to use quotations.
- There is no need to research outside of the case to complete the brief. 
- Facts should not include what the decision was at the court, it is in the 
Holding. - Facts should only include relevant information to the court’s decision.
- The issue should always begin with “Did the lower court err” or “Did the 
lower court abuse its discretion.” - The lower court should always be referred to as the lower court.
- State the law and what it says. It will be clearly cited within the case.
- Two 50 question multiple choice tests in class.
- All answers are from the textbook.
- Two weeks before test a review sheet will be sent out.
Project Case List:
- Spreadsheet will be due 10/26 with names of cases wanting to use for 
project. - First come, first choice on cases. No duplicates between students.
- Use Florida Jurisprudence & West Law for research.
- Cases can be from any state as long as they are about contracts. (i.e. not 
criminal cases). - Choose 5 cases discussing different types of contract law. Tips:
- Punctuality & Punctuation are very important.
- Phrasing is mandatory. Example: I agree with the holding in Acosta v. Dist. 
Bd. Of Trustees Miami Dade Comm. College because… - Sometimes there is only the lower court’s decision if the case did not go to  appeals. - Each court is only concerned with the immediate lower court’s decision.
