Drafting a Case brief

The assignment for this week is to locate a specific landmark U.S. Supreme Court case and draft a case brief. Find and review the case Gideon v. Wainwright on the Legal Information Institute website.


Write a 1-2 page case brief utilizing the sample case brief in chapter one of the textbook as a guide and template. Make sure you are briefing the correct case. Please note that you do not need to include the concurring or dissenting opinions in your brief. Be sure to cite any outside sources used in your work, and follow APA guidelines

This week’s assignment is worded poorly.  The case you are to brief is the case mentioned, not just any random landmark case you find. Everyone should be briefing the  Gideon v. Wainwright case.
