Activity 1. Students Present Briefs
Students should also examine the legal questions in dispute, the arguments for each side, and the effect of the decision on legal precedents. (These questions and others can be found on the Case Study Activity Sheet.) Following each presentation, provide a short time for questions and answers. Matt Johnson did not suggest a time limit for each presentation, although some classes might need this guidance. In retrospect, he wondered whether he should have had all 30 cases presented orally. In the future, he feels it might be adequate to present selected briefs to the class and simply distribute the paper summaries of the others.
