Brief Bristol Myers vs California Supreme Court Supreme Court case attached to this assignment dealing with personal jurisdiction. While each of the cases are long, please don’t submit a case brief longer than three pages. Use the same format you used for last week’s assignment. Before briefing one of the three Supreme Court cases, please take a look at the three handouts also attached to this assignment. The first handout describes the rubric that I will apply when grading your case brief. The second handout provides a detailed explanation of the parts of a case brief. The third handout provides an example of a case brief labeled as a “model case brief.”
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you run into problems with this assignment. And remember – don’t make it more complicated than it needs to be. Additionally – good writing is good writing, whether you are writing a case brief or a research paper. Don’t forget what you already know about writing.
Case briefs are used to highlight the key information contained within a case for use within the legal community as court cases can be quite lengthy. When writing case briefs, please remember to cite properly. Make sure you are not copying and pasting from your source. While a case brief requires you to identify the parts of a case, you should not solely cut and paste from the case. Remember that Turnitin.com reviews all papers and similarity scores of more than 10% may raise red flags. Note: The purpose of case briefing is to highlight and summarize key information, merely copying and pasting from the case does not accomplish this goal. You must summarize the facts in your own words, using quotations sparingly. And, please do not submit a paper that you found on the internet as your own.
Remember to proofread your work! Additionally, don’t forget to submit it as a .doc or .docx document and submit it for grading!
I’ve attached the supporting document but I am sure there are shorter summaries available online.
