I have attached an example and a template and also the book.

This is a link (Links to an external site.) to the Supreme Court of the United States’ opinion in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, 590 U.S. ___ (2020). Using this decision, you will learn how to “brief” a case. Appendix A (pages 400-403) in your textbook will provide guidance for this project. While the examples show some sections numerically listed, your sections should be written in paragraph form. Your brief will need to contain the following sections: facts, legal/procedural history, issue(s), analysis/reasoning, analysis/reasoning for any dissenting and/or concurring opinions, rule of law/holding, and a one-paragraph student response. Be sure to use these sections as headings in your paper. Students may do extra research to ascertain exactly what led to the case, legal terminology, legal theories, explanations from the court, etc. as a full picture of the case may not actually be contained within the opinion. Your paper should be at least 4 pages (but no more than 6 pages) in length. Your paper should be double spaced in size 12 Times New Roman font with one-inch margins, and any extra space between paragraphs should be removed.

    • Note: As stated in the syllabus, all citations must be in APA format. When citing to a case, APA adopts the formal legal citation system contained within The bluebook: A uniform system of citation. (2010). Cambridge, MA: The Harvard Law Review Association. This book, while useful in the legal community, is not worth your time and money to simply cite a handful of cases over the next eight weeks. Instead, I will give you the correct citation to use. For the first citation in a brief, you should use the long-form citation. Afterwards, students should use the short form citations for all other citations contained in the brief.
      • The long-form citation for this case is Bostock v. Clayton Cnty, Ga., 590 U.S. ___ (2018).
      • The short form citation is (Bostock, 590 U.S. at [insert page number]).
