When briefing a case, your goal is to reduce the information from the case into a format that will provide you with a helpful reference in class and for review. Most importantly, by “briefing” a case, you will grasp the problem the court faced (the issue); the relevant law the court used to solve it (the rule); how the court applied the rule to the facts (the application or “analysis/reason”); and the outcome (the conclusion/decision). You will then be ready to not only discuss the case, but to compare and contrast it to other cases involving a similar issue.Before attempting to “brief” a case, read the case at least once.Instructions: After reading Chapter 8, review the case synopsis found on page 199 for Palsgraf v.
