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, all information must be properly cited. Most of the material should be paraphrased; quotations should make up no more than 10% of the brief. You must summarize the facts in your own words, using quotations sparingly.
