Case briefs can be long or short, depending on the depth of analysis required and the complexity of the case. A comprehensive case brief
must include ALL of the following elements: 1. Case Title & Citation 2. Relevant Case Facts 3. Procedural History 4. Issue(s) 5. Holding
(decision) 6. Reasoning (analysis) includes rule(s) of law 7. Dissent(s)/Concurrence(s) … if any. For example, all relevant facts must be
included in the Relevant Case Facts section, not just a few random facts. If a case has more than one issue you MUST address every issue.
Example: 3 issue must have three holdings and three reasonings.
