LEGL 210 BUSINESS LAW I JUDY KOCH ASSIGNMENT # 1 LEGAL CASE ANALYSIS VALUE: 10% OF FINAL GRADE DUE: Thursday, October 10, 2013, AT OR BEFORE 6:00 p.m. DESCRIPTION This is an individual assignment. Choose from Fact Situation A or B, attached. Analyze one of the attached fact situations using the format and process described in the attached document, “How to Analyze a Legal Case Problem”. You should write using sentences and paragraphs. Use Headings as outlined in the 5-part process for analyzing a legal case. Your answer should be 3 – 5 pages in length (double spaced). Your assignment will be graded primarily on content, i.e. the accuracy of your fact summary, correctness of your issue identification, clear and accurate essay on the relevant laws, soundness and reasonableness of your legal arguments, and consistency of your conclusion with your arguments. In the Law portion of the case analysis, you will be summarizing and paraphrasing the relevant law from Yates (i.e. the textbook for the course). You must properly use APA rules to acknowledge the source of both paraphrases and direct quotes. Use parenthetical citations, not footnotes. For example, if you were analyzing a case involving the law of false imprisonment, this is how you would cite the source for the direct quotation: False imprisonment is an intentional tort, the two elements of which are the detaining or restraining of another person, and having no lawful right to do so.
