Case Brief Project (1-2 Pages (1 page minimum and 2 page maximum), 10-12 point font size, standard font style (e.g., Garamond, Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri), and 0.5″ to 1″ margins). See examples here: student case brief examples.pdf, recent example, another case brief example.pdf, case brief example.pdf, Another Case Brief Example (over page limit though).pdf, and Case Brief Example-3.pdf.case that has been decided by the Supreme Court of the United States or the Supreme Court of California from within the past 5 years, then summarize the judicial opinion in the form of a case brief (see examples above and more information below). This website should help you find a case from the US Supreme Court according to issues of interest to you: https://www.oyez.org/issues . For example, if interested in affirmative action cases, you can see a list of such cases at https://www.oyez.org/issues/155. From that list, one would usually look for a case decided by the US Supreme Court within the last 5 years; however, if the most recent case on that topic was not from within the last five years, such as Fisher v. University of Texas(see https://www.oyez.org/cases/2015/14-981), then an older case may be selected if the rationale for selecting an older case is explained in the case brief. From that Oyez webpage for the Fisher case, you can access the opinion of the case at https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/15pdf/14-981_4g15.pdf or at https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/579/14-981/#tab-opinion-3589817 to summarize in your case brief (and you can also check your understanding with the summary of the case on the Oyez webpage). If you utilize a source in your case brief other than the actual opinion of the case, such as using a website like Oyez, then please cite it using any standard citation format (e.g., MLA, APA, University of Chicago, Bluebook) and include a works cited page (and put any direct quotes from it in quotation marks). The works cited page, if needed, does not count toward the page limits. That said, there is no need to utilize any source other than the actual Supreme Court opinion analyzed for the case. Other than quotation marks for any direct quotes, there is no need to cite the actual opinion for the case (only other sources, if any). Thus, a paraphrase from the actual opinion would not need to be cited.
