Harvard Law School  The Case Studies

About Harvard Law Case Studies

Case studies at harvard law school.

"[In 2004], Harvard Law School embarked on a major curricular review aimed at determining what changes might help us to prepare our students even more effectively for the complex global challenges of this new millennium."

--Supreme Court Justice and former HLS Dean Elena Kagan, 2007

One of the major initiatives that came out of this review was the Problem Solving Workshop, a required first-year program aimed at practical lawyering skills. View this short video about the Problem-Solving Workshop:

Harvard’s curricular review in 2004 challenged the accepted way of teaching law. In 2007, HLS Dean Martha Minow and Professor Todd Rakoff published these findings, "A Case for Another Case Method," in the Vanderbilt Law Review.

The Langdellian case method , which focused on "a retrospective view of facts," was falling short in teaching critical problem solving skills. What law school needed, according to Minow and Rakoff, was a new way to simulate “legal imagination.”

Minow and Rakoff wrote: "What [students] most crucially lack ... is the ability to generate the multiple characterizations, multiple versions, multiple pathways, and multiple solutions, to which they could apply their very well-honed analytic skills."

To that end, Harvard Law School instituted the Problem Solving Workshop, a required first-year course that teaches problem solving skills through the case study method . The Problem Solving Workshop encourages the use of case studies throughout the HLS curriculum.

Now, several faculty initiatives produce case studies at Harvard Law School.  

The Case Development Initiative 

The Case Development Initiative   creates case studies for J.D. and Executive Education classes. HLS faculty use case studies to teach a variety of legal topics, including career dilemmas that lawyers face and management issues that law firms and professional service firms experience. These case studies expose participants to real-world problems that lawyers and firm leaders confront, and help them work through possible approaches and solutions. CDI was founded by Professor Ashish Nanda and is now directed by Dr. Lisa Rohrer.

Great for: discussion-based case studies, law and business, management , professional development

Sample Teaching Units: Professional Development for In-House Counsel , Professional Development for Law Firms , Leadership

Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program

The Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program , directed by Professor Robert Bordone , developed several role plays for an advanced negotiation workshop at HLS. The course, Multiparty Negotiation, Group Decision Making, and Teams , enables students to participate in and conduct complex, multiparty negotiations. "Lawyers and other professionals, irrespective of their specialty, find themselves party to negotiations with multiple (more than two) principals all the time," explains Bordone. "This course combines theory and practice to give students an opportunity to hone their skills in multiparty settings."  Students work in teams to address complex, global, and professional issues. The advanced workshop integrates intellectual and experiential learning by combining readings, lectures, and discussions with frequent exercises, extensive review, live and filmed examples, individual and small group reviews, and analysis of the negotiation process and the process of learning from experience.

Great for: role plays, multiparty negotiation, DVDs , mediation

Sample Teaching Units: Critical Decisions in Negotiation

Program on Negotiation 

Program on Negotiation materials use real events or fictionalized versions of events to teach negotiation and mediation theory, issues, and practice. These materials can take the form of a discussion exercise, a role playing game, a dilemma-based case study, or a factual account of a negotiation event. Events and historical contexts, such as the rise of organized labor in the United States, the conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland, and the history of Zionists and Arabs in the Middle East, catalyze discussion and debate on negotiation and dispute resolution.

Great for: role plays, historical case studies, negotiation, value-based conflict resolution, water rights and environmental management, examples of Great Negotiators

Sample Teaching Units: Mediating Value-Based Conflict

Problem Solving Workshop 

Problem Solving Workshop materials immerse students in the type of real-world problems faced every day by practicing lawyers. The case studies present the problem at hand and provide readings on related theory, excerpts of relevant law, and other illustrative documents, such as contracts and leases. Students complete team assignments and exercises that include tasks such as drafting a press release as general counsel of a toy company in trouble; determining, as an associate at a law firm, the possible actions open to a client facing a harassment change from a tenant; or deciding, as a new Assistant U.S. Attorney in New York, whether—and how—to charge someone with Section 8 housing fraud. Professors   Todd Rakoff   and   Joseph Singer lead the PSW teaching group, which develops new materials yearly.

Hertz CEO Kathryn Marinello with CFO Jamere Jackson and other members of the executive team in 2017

Top 40 Most Popular Case Studies of 2021

Two cases about Hertz claimed top spots in 2021's Top 40 Most Popular Case Studies

Two cases on the uses of debt and equity at Hertz claimed top spots in the CRDT’s (Case Research and Development Team) 2021 top 40 review of cases.

Hertz (A) took the top spot. The case details the financial structure of the rental car company through the end of 2019. Hertz (B), which ranked third in CRDT’s list, describes the company’s struggles during the early part of the COVID pandemic and its eventual need to enter Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 

The success of the Hertz cases was unprecedented for the top 40 list. Usually, cases take a number of years to gain popularity, but the Hertz cases claimed top spots in their first year of release. Hertz (A) also became the first ‘cooked’ case to top the annual review, as all of the other winners had been web-based ‘raw’ cases.

Besides introducing students to the complicated financing required to maintain an enormous fleet of cars, the Hertz cases also expanded the diversity of case protagonists. Kathyrn Marinello was the CEO of Hertz during this period and the CFO, Jamere Jackson is black.

Sandwiched between the two Hertz cases, Coffee 2016, a perennial best seller, finished second. “Glory, Glory, Man United!” a case about an English football team’s IPO made a surprise move to number four.  Cases on search fund boards, the future of malls,  Norway’s Sovereign Wealth fund, Prodigy Finance, the Mayo Clinic, and Cadbury rounded out the top ten.

Other year-end data for 2021 showed:

  • Online “raw” case usage remained steady as compared to 2020 with over 35K users from 170 countries and all 50 U.S. states interacting with 196 cases.
  • Fifty four percent of raw case users came from outside the U.S..
  • The Yale School of Management (SOM) case study directory pages received over 160K page views from 177 countries with approximately a third originating in India followed by the U.S. and the Philippines.
  • Twenty-six of the cases in the list are raw cases.
  • A third of the cases feature a woman protagonist.
  • Orders for Yale SOM case studies increased by almost 50% compared to 2020.
  • The top 40 cases were supervised by 19 different Yale SOM faculty members, several supervising multiple cases.

CRDT compiled the Top 40 list by combining data from its case store, Google Analytics, and other measures of interest and adoption.

All of this year’s Top 40 cases are available for purchase from the Yale Management Media store .

And the Top 40 cases studies of 2021 are:

1.   Hertz Global Holdings (A): Uses of Debt and Equity

2.   Coffee 2016

Law Case Study – How To Answer Case Studies in Law

One of the major challenges students have in business law and other law courses are answering questions under the case study. In this article, I will explain how to answer any law case study question following the same rule you are aware of and which is generally recommended. The IRAC or IDAC Principle.

Law Case Study Tips

IRAC Principle is an acronym which depicts,

“I” for Identification

“R” for Rule(s)

“A” for Analysis

“C” for Conclusion

While the IDAC Principle depicts the same but “D” stands for Definition.

Law Case Study – Question 1

Chuddy requested Kris to transport goods from Lagos to Darlington’s estate in Enugu state for the sum of N200,000.00. Kris replied that he was only prepared to transport the goods for N300,000.00.

Chuddy wrote back to Kris asking him to reconsider the initial price, but Kris did not reply to his letter. Two days later, Chuddy delivered the goods to the business premises of Kris, who transported them to Darlington’s Estate in Enugu State.

Chuddy has refused to pay the N300,000.00 demand by Kris, saying that there was no concluded contract. Advise the party using relevant authorities.

 [Question 1, First Semester Exam 2014/2015. BAM – YABATECH]


Let’s make use of the IRAC Principle to answer this question, but before this, let me quickly explain how it works.

“I” – Identification.

First of all, you need to identify under which law the case falls, if it is LAW OF CONTRACT then you consider the elements of the law of contract which are Offer, Acceptance, Consideration, Invitation to treat etc…

  • So, from the case above, after reading the question/case, you’ll find out that it is AN OFFER . An offer is a definite undertaking with the expectation that it will become binding when the person accepts but since there was no acceptance between Chuddy and Kris, it means that the offer was terminated.

“R” – Rules

From the above rule, we can say that the offer is a counter-offer because the terms [amount involved] were not accepted by both parties which also means that it was rejected.

So, what are the rules for termination of an offer?

  • An offer can be terminated through or by Revocation by rejection, the death of either party, the lapse of time and counter-offer [it varies the terms of an offer]

 “A” – Analysis

By Analysis, you are expected to analyze the case study on some facts and principles that are similar in the area of law . [Always remember to lay emphasis on established facts and principles]

Since we have identified the rules applicable stating that it is a counter-offer and it was rejected then let’s see what it means.

  • Counter Offer: In a nutshell, counter offer varies the terms of an offer
  • By rejection: It means the offeree did not accept the terms of the offer.

“C” – Conclusion

Here, you are expected to conclude your judgment based on legal facts and principles you have identified. Your conclusion should also entail which party has the right to sue or succeed if the matter is taken to court for legal actions.

  • So, since a counteroffer cannot give rise to a binding agreement, it means that Kris should not take the issue to court because, by the means of a counteroffer, there was no agreement between both parties.

What is a Case Study?

A case study is a research method used to study a particular individual, group, or situation in depth. It involves analyzing and interpreting data from a variety of sources to gain insight into the subject being studied. 

Case studies are commonly used in fields such as psychology, business, and education to understand complex issues and develop solutions. They typically include detailed descriptions of the subject, background information, and an analysis of the key issues involved. 

The goal of a case study is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the subject, as well as to identify potential solutions or recommendations.

How Long Should a Case Study Be?

What you need to include in your story will depend on the type of discipline. For example, a kitchen remodeling company could tell its entire story with pictures. Whereas this approach may not be suitable for a software invoicing solution.

Consider this pro advice while crafting your case study:

  • Most sources indicate that it should consist of 500-1500 words.
  • To ensure that your message is concise and crystal clear, add a brief snapshot section of 100 words or less.

What Is a Marketing Case Study?

This type of case study focuses on a particular marketing challenge or problem. It analyzes the strategies used to overcome the challenge and achieve a successful outcome. 

Marketing case studies can be used to showcase effective marketing tactics, as well as to learn from failures and avoid common pitfalls. They often include details about the target audience, marketing channels used, and metrics to measure success. 

Marketing case studies are commonly used in business courses to help students understand marketing challenges and develop strategies.

Marketing Case Study Examples

Marketing case studies are real-life stories that showcase how a business solved a problem. They often discuss how a business achieved a goal using a specific marketing strategy or tactic.

They typically describe a challenge faced by a business, the solution implemented, and the results achieved.

The purpose of a marketing case study is to demonstrate a business's expertise and ability to solve problems. This is done to show their potential to customers.

Here are some examples that show how companies use case studies as a means of marketing and promotion:

1- "Chevrolet Discover the Unexpected" by Carol H. Williams 

This case study explores Chevrolet's DTU Journalism Fellows program. The case study uses the initials "DTU" to generate interest and encourage readers to learn more. There are multiple types of media such as images and videos used to explain the challenges faced. The case study concludes with an overview of the achievements that were met:

Key points from the case study include:

  • Using a well-known brand name in the title can create interest.
  • Combining different media types, such as headings, images, and videos, can help engage readers and make the content more memorable.
  • Providing a summary of the key achievements at the end of the case study can help readers better understand the project's impact.

2- “The Met” by Fantasy

Fantasy's case study for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, titled "The Met," provides a clear and simple showcase of the museum's website redesign. The case study emphasizes the features and interface of the website by showcasing each section of the interface individually, allowing the readers to concentrate on the significant elements.

For those who prefer text, each feature includes an objective description. The case study also includes a "Contact Us" call-to-action at the bottom of the page, inviting visitors to get in touch with the company.

Key points from this case study include:

  • Keeping the case study simple and clean can help readers focus on the most important aspects.
  • Presenting the features and solutions with a visual showcase can be more effective than writing a lot of text.
  • Including a clear call-to-action at the end of the case study can encourage visitors to contact the company for more information.

3- "In-Depth Performance Marketing Case Study," by Switch

This impressive case study presented by an international marketing agency, Switch, effectively communicates its client's success without revealing their name. To keep non-marketers in the loop, Switch includes a glossary of terms. The case study is presented in a fourteen-page PDF that's easy to skim, featuring big fonts and white space. Each page covers a different strategy, making it easy to navigate.

To provide readers with an overview of the client's requirements and reasons for approaching Switch, the Switch case study employs titles such as "Scenario," "Approach," and "In-Depth Performance Marketing Case Study" at a higher level. The PDF also features a CTA page and contact information for prospective clients.

Key points from the Switch case study:

  • Include a glossary of terms to make specialized information accessible to non-specialists.
  • Make your case study easy to navigate by using titles and separating sections.
  • Close with a CTA page and include contact information for prospective clients.

4- “Better Experiences for All” by Herman Miller

Herman Miller's minimalist approach to furniture design translates to their case study page for a Dubai hospital. The page features a captivating video with closed-captioning and expandable text for accessibility.

The case study presents a wealth of information in a concise format, enabling users to comprehend the intricacies of the strategy with ease. It concludes with a client testimonial and a list of furniture items purchased from the brand.

Key points from the case study:

  • Make sure your case study is user-friendly by including accessibility features like closed captioning and expandable text.
  • Include a list of products that were used in the project to guide potential customers.

5- “NetApp” by Evisort

The NetApp case study by Evisort is an excellent example of an informative, thorough, and compelling case study. Evisort starts off the case study with an at-a-glance overview of the client, NetApp. This approach helps to focus the attention on the client rather than the company or team.

The case study features client quotes and delves into the obstacles that NetApp encountered during the COVID pandemic. By highlighting how its services helped NetApp during tough times, Evisort demonstrates its value as a partner to their clients.

To make the case study accessible in a wider variety of formats, Evisort provides access to download their study in PDF format. This is an important consideration for making the case study easy to share and reference.

Key points from the Evisort example:

  • Provide an overview of the company in the client’s words and put focus on the customer. 
  • Highlight how your services can help clients during challenging times.
  • Make your case study accessible by providing it in various formats.

6- "Red Sox Season Campaign," by CTP Boston

The case study for the Red Sox Season Campaign by CTP Boston showcases a perfect blend of different media, such as video, text, and images. Upon visiting the page, the video plays automatically, and as you scroll, you'll find more videos featuring Red Sox players, social media images, and print ads that can be enlarged with a click.

The page features a clean and cohesive design that is visually appealing and invites viewers to appreciate CTP's well-rounded campaign for Boston's beloved baseball team. At the bottom, the page includes a call-to-action that encourages viewers to learn how CTP can create a similar campaign for their own brand.

Key points to take away:

  • Including a variety of media such as video, images, and text can make your case study more engaging and compelling.
  • Include a call-to-action at the end of your study that encourages viewers to take the next step towards becoming a customer or prospect.

7- “Zapier Case Study” by Ryan Berg

Ryan Berg's SEO case study on Zapier is an excellent example of an explanatory case study that can be used for marketing purposes. The study provides a comprehensive breakdown of Zapier's SEO strategy and how they created over 25,000 unique landing pages to improve their search rankings for different search terms.

One of Zapier's key strategies involved targeting relevant long-tail keywords such as "app A + app B integration," which helped them generate significant organic traffic over the long term. By analyzing the success of industry leaders and breaking down their strategies, businesses can borrow their brand power and credibility.

Explanatory case studies like this one are particularly useful when clients are not comfortable with sharing detailed information about their growth tactics. Such case studies can demonstrate a company's expertise and credibility to potential clients, proving their ability to help them succeed in their industry.

  • Targeting relevant long-tail keywords is an effective strategy for generating organic traffic.
  • Analyzing the success of industry leaders can provide valuable insights for developing a successful strategy.
  • Explanatory case studies can demonstrate a company's expertise and credibility to potential clients.

8- “Video Marketing Case Study” by L’Oréal and YouTube

The case study on L’Oréal and YouTube showcases the success of their video marketing campaign to launch a new product. The global marketing team members explain how they strategically used YouTube ads to achieve impressive results, including establishing the new product as the second-best in its category and generating 34% of all mass sales among online retailers. 

The case study provides a detailed breakdown of the various stages of the campaign, from awareness to loyalty, highlighting the effective use of YouTube at each step. It serves as a great example of a third-person implementation case study that demonstrates the power of video marketing.

Key points for learning:

  • Use YouTube ads strategically for different stages of a campaign, from awareness to loyalty.
  • Effective use of video marketing can lead to impressive results, such as establishing a new product as a leading player in its category and generating significant sales.
  • Third-person implementation case studies can showcase your expertise and the success of your marketing strategies to potential clients.

9- “Airbnd + Zendesk” by Zendesk

The case study by Zendesk, titled "Airbnb + Zendesk: building a powerful solution together" showcases a true partnership between Airbnb and Zendesk. The article begins with an intriguing opening statement, "Halfway around the globe is a place to stay with your name on it. At least for a weekend," and uses stunning photographs of beautiful Airbnb locations to captivate readers.

Instead of solely highlighting Zendesk's product, the case study is crafted to tell a good story and highlight Airbnb's service in detail. This strategy makes the case study more authentic and relatable.

Key points to take away from this case study:

  • Use client's offerings' images rather than just screenshots of your own product or service.
  • To begin the case study, it is recommended to include a distinct call to action. For instance, Zendesk presents two alternatives, namely to initiate a trial or seek a solution.

10- “Influencer Marketing” by Trend and WarbyParker

The case study from Trend and Warby Parker highlights the potential of influencer marketing, even when working with a limited budget. The "Wearing Warby" campaign involved influencers wearing Warby Parker glasses during their daily activities, providing a glimpse of the brand's products in use. 

This strategy helped to make the brand more relatable to the influencers' followers. Although the case study does not delve deeply into the tactics used, it demonstrates the effectiveness of third-person case studies in showcasing the results of a campaign.

  • Influencer marketing can be effective even with a limited budget.
  • Showcasing products being used in everyday life can make a brand more approachable and relatable.
  • Third-person case studies can be useful in highlighting the success of a campaign.

This means that the administrator bears responsibility for any breach of law that may occur during the discharge of their duties. The administrator must thus be aware of any legal requirements that relate to the hospital. One of the key laws to be aware of is the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA). From a general perspective, the law prevents ‘dumping’ of patients out of emergency departments (Pozgar, 2012).

If a person is required by law to disclose all the information on oneself, the person is under obligation to do so truthfully and avoid any lies. First, the fact that the applicant cheats that he has never been arrested before puts doubts on his integrity. In this case, the person does not provide truthful information about oneself. The lack of integrity is critical for anyone working in the security sector which requires one to maintain high standards of morals.

How to write a case brief for law school: Excerpt reproduced from Introduction to the Study of Law: Cases and Materials ,

Third edition (lexisnexis 2009) by michael makdisi & john makdisi.


The previous section described the parts of a case in order to make it easier to read and identify the pertinent information that you will use to create your briefs. This section will describe the parts of a brief in order to give you an idea about what a brief is, what is helpful to include in a brief, and what purpose it serves. Case briefs are a necessary study aid in law school that helps to encapsulate and analyze the mountainous mass of material that law students must digest. The case brief represents a final product after reading a case, rereading it, taking it apart, and putting it back together again. In addition to its function as a tool for self-instruction and referencing, the case brief also provides a valuable “cheat sheet” for class participation.

Who will read your brief? Most professors will espouse the value of briefing but will never ask to see that you have, in fact, briefed. As a practicing lawyer, your client doesn’t care if you brief, so long as you win the case. The judges certainly don’t care if you brief, so long as you competently practice the law. You are the person that the brief will serve! Keep this in mind when deciding what elements to include as part of your brief and when deciding what information to include under those elements.

What are the elements of a brief? Different people will tell you to include different things in your brief. Most likely, upon entering law school, this will happen with one or more of your instructors. While opinions may vary, four elements that are essential to any useful brief are the following:

(a) Facts (name of the case and its parties, what happened factually and procedurally, and the judgment)

(b) Issues (what is in dispute)

(c) Holding (the applied rule of law)

(d) Rationale (reasons for the holding)

If you include nothing but these four elements, you should have everything you need in order to recall effectively the information from the case during class or several months later when studying for exams.

Because briefs are made for yourself, you may want to include other elements that expand the four elements listed above. Depending on the case, the inclusion of additional elements may be useful. For example, a case that has a long and important section expounding dicta might call for a separate section in your brief labeled: Dicta. Whatever elements you decide to include, however, remember that the brief is a tool intended for personal use. To the extent that more elements will help with organization and use of the brief, include them. On the other hand, if you find that having more elements makes your brief cumbersome and hard to use, cut back on the number of elements. At a minimum, however, make sure you include the four elements listed above.

Elements that you may want to consider including in addition to the four basic elements are:

(e) Dicta (commentary about the decision that was not the basis for the decision)

(f) Dissent (if a valuable dissenting opinion exits, the dissent’s opinion)

(g) Party’s Arguments (each party’s opposing argument concerning the ultimate issue)

(h) Comments (personal commentary)

Personal comments can be useful if you have a thought that does not fit elsewhere. In the personal experience of one of the authors, this element was used to label cases as specific kinds (e.g., as a case of vicarious liability) or make mental notes about what he found peculiar or puzzling about cases. This element allowed him to release his thoughts (without losing them) so that he could move on to other cases.

In addition to these elements, it may help you to organize your thoughts, as some people do, by dividing Facts into separate elements:

(1) Facts of the case (what actually happened, the controversy)

(2) Procedural History (what events within the court system led to the present case)

(3) Judgment (what the court actually decided)

Procedural History is usually minimal and most of the time irrelevant to the ultimate importance of a case; however, this is not always true. One subject in which Procedure History is virtually always relevant is Civil Procedure.

When describing the Judgment of the case, distinguish it from the Holding. The Judgment is the factual determination by the court, in favor of one party, such as “affirmed,” “reversed,” or “remanded.” In contrast, the Holding is the applied rule of law that serves as the basis for the ultimate judgment.

Remember that the purpose of a brief is to remind you of the important details that make the case significant in terms of the law. It will be a reference tool when you are drilled by a professor and will be a study aid when you prepare for exams. A brief is also like a puzzle piece.

The elements of the brief create the unique shape and colors of the piece, and, when combined with other pieces, the picture of the common law takes form. A well-constructed brief will save you lots of time by removing the need to return to the case to remember the important details and also by making it easier to put together the pieces of the common law puzzle.


So now that you know the basic elements of a brief, what information is important to include under each element? The simple answer is: whatever is relevant. But what parts of a case are relevant? When you read your first few cases, you may think that everything that the judge said was relevant to his ultimate conclusion. Even if this were true, what is relevant for the judge to make his decision is not always relevant for you to include in your brief. Remember, the reason to make a brief is not to persuade the world that the ultimate decision in the case is a sound one, but rather to aid in refreshing your memory concerning the most important parts of the case.

What facts are relevant to include in a brief? You should include the facts that are necessary to remind you of the story. If you forget the story, you will not remember how the law in the case was applied. You should also include the facts that are dispositive to the decision in the case. For instance, if the fact that a car is white is a determining factor in the case, the brief should note that the case involves a white car and not simply a car. To the extent that the procedural history either helps you to remember the case or plays an important role in the ultimate outcome, you should include these facts as well.

What issues and conclusions are relevant to include in a brief? There is usually one main issue on which the court rests its decision. This may seem simple, but the court may talk about multiple issues, and may discuss multiple arguments from both sides of the case. Be sure to distinguish the issues from the arguments made by the parties. The relevant issue or issues, and corresponding conclusions, are the ones for which the court made a final decision and which are binding. The court may discuss intermediate conclusions or issues, but stay focused on the main issue and conclusion which binds future courts.

What rationale is important to include in a brief? This is probably the most difficult aspect of the case to determine. Remember that everything that is discussed may have been relevant to the judge, but it is not necessarily relevant to the rationale of the decision. The goal is to remind yourself of the basic reasoning that the court used to come to its decision and the key factors that made the decision favor one side or the other.

A brief should be brief! Overly long or cumbersome briefs are not very helpful because you will not be able to skim them easily when you review your notes or when the professor drills you. On the other hand, a brief that is too short will be equally unhelpful because it lacks sufficient information to refresh your memory. Try to keep your briefs to one page in length. This will make it easy for you to organize and reference them.

Do not get discouraged. Learning to brief and figuring out exactly what to include will take time and practice. The more you brief, the easier it will become to extract the relevant information.

While a brief is an extremely helpful and important study aid, annotating and highlighting are other tools for breaking down the mass of material in your casebook. The remainder of this section will discuss these different techniques and show how they complement and enhance the briefing process.

Annotating Cases

Many of you probably already read with a pencil or pen, but if you do not, now is the time to get in the habit. Cases are so dense and full of information that you will find yourself spending considerable amounts of time rereading cases to find what you need. An effective way to reduce this time is to annotate the margins of the casebook. Your pencil (or pen) will be one of your best friends while reading a case. It will allow you to mark off the different sections (such as facts, procedural history, or conclusions), thus allowing you to clear your mind of thoughts and providing an invaluable resource when briefing and reviewing.

You might be wondering why annotating is important if you make an adequate, well-constructed brief. By their very nature briefs cannot cover everything in a case. Even with a thorough, well-constructed brief you may want to reference the original case in order to reread dicta that might not have seemed important at the time, to review the complete procedural history or set of facts, or to scour the rationale for a better understanding of the case; annotating makes these tasks easier. Whether you return to a case after a few hours or a few months, annotations will swiftly guide you to the pertinent parts of the case by providing a roadmap of the important sections. Your textual markings and margin notes will refresh your memory and restore specific thoughts you might have had about either the case in general or an individual passage.

Annotations will also remind you of forgotten thoughts and random ideas by providing a medium for personal comments.

In addition to making it easier to review an original case, annotating cases during the first review of a case makes the briefing process easier. With adequate annotations, the important details needed for your brief will be much easier to retrieve. Without annotations, you will likely have difficulty locating the information you seek even in the short cases. It might seem strange that it would be hard to reference a short case, but even a short case will likely take you at least fifteen to twenty-five minutes to read, while longer cases may take as much as thirty minutes to an hour to complete. No matter how long it takes, the dense material of all cases makes it difficult to remember all your thoughts, and trying to locate specific sections of the analysis may feel like you are trying to locate a needle in a haystack. An annotation in the margin, however, will not only swiftly guide you to a pertinent section, but will also refresh the thoughts that you had while reading that section.

When you read a case for the first time, read for the story and for a basic understanding of the dispute, the issues, the rationale, and the decision. As you hit these elements (or what you think are these elements) make a mark in the margins. Your markings can be as simple as “facts” (with a bracket that indicates the relevant part of the paragraph). When you spot an issue, you may simply mark “issue” or instead provide a synopsis in your own words. When a case sparks an idea — write that idea in the margin as well — you never know when a seemingly irrelevant idea might turn into something more.

Finally, when you spot a particularly important part of the text, underline it (or highlight it as described below).

With a basic understanding of the case, and with annotations in the margin, the second read-through of the case should be much easier. You can direct your reading to the most important sections and will have an easier time identifying what is and is not important. Continue rereading the case until you have identified all the relevant information that you need to make your brief, including the issue(s), the facts, the holding, and the relevant parts of the analysis.

Pencil or pen — which is better to use when annotating? Our recommendation is a mechanical pencil. Mechanical pencils make finer markings than regular pencils, and also than ballpoint pens. Although you might think a pencil might smear more than a pen, with its sharp point a mechanical pencil uses very little excess lead and will not smear as much as you might imagine. A mechanical pencil will also give you the freedom to make mistakes without consequences. When you first start annotating, you may think that some passages are more important than they really are, and therefore you may resist the urge to make a mark in order to preserve your book and prevent false guideposts. With a pencil, however, the ability to erase and rewrite removes this problem.


Why highlight? Like annotating, highlighting may seem unimportant if you create thorough, well-constructed briefs, but highlighting directly helps you to brief. It makes cases, especially the more complicated ones, easy to digest, review and use to extract information.

Highlighting takes advantage of colors to provide a uniquely effective method for reviewing and referencing a case. If you prefer a visual approach to learning, you may find highlighting to be a very effective tool.

If annotating and highlighting are so effective, why brief? Because the process of summarizing a case and putting it into your own words within a brief provides an understanding of the law and of the case that you cannot gain through the process of highlighting or annotating.

The process of putting the case into your own words forces you to digest the material, while annotating and highlighting can be accomplished in a much more passive manner.

What should you highlight? Similar to annotating, the best parts of the case to highlight are those that represent the needed information for your brief such as the facts, the issue, the holding and the rationale.

Unlike annotating, highlighting provides an effective way to color code, which makes referring to the case even easier. In addition, Highlighters are particularly useful in marking off entire sections by using brackets. These brackets will allow you to color-code the case without highlighting all the text, leaving the most important phrases untouched for a more detailed highlight marking or underlining.

Highlighting is a personal tool, and therefore should be used to the extent that highlighting helps, but should be modified in a way that makes it personally time efficient and beneficial. For instance, you might combine the use of annotations in the margins with the visual benefit of highlighting the relevant text. You may prefer to underline the relevant text with a pencil, but to use a highlighter to bracket off the different sections of a case. Whatever you choose to do, make sure that it works for you, regardless of what others recommend. The techniques in the remainder of this section will describe ways to make full use of your highlighters.

First, buy yourself a set of multi-colored highlighters, with at least four, or perhaps five or six different colors. Yellow, pink, and orange are usually the brightest. Depending on the brand, purple and green can be dark, but still work well. Although blue is a beautiful color, it tends to darken and hide the text.

Therefore we recommend that you save blue for the elements that you rarely highlight.

For each different section of the case, choose a color, and use that color only when highlighting the section of the case designated for that color. Consider using yellow for the text that you tend to highlight most frequently. Because yellow is the brightest, you may be inclined to use yellow for the Conclusions in order to make them stand out the most. If you do this, however, you will exhaust your other colors much faster than yellow and this will require that you purchase an entire set of new highlighters when a single color runs out because colors such as green are not sold separately. If instead you choose to use yellow on a more frequently highlighted section such as the Analysis, when it comes time to replace your yellow marker, you will need only to replace your yellow highlighter individually. In the personal experience on one of the authors, the sections of cases that seemed to demand the most highlighter attention were the

Facts and the Analysis, while the Issues and Holdings demanded the least. Other Considerations and

Procedural History required lots of highlighting in particular cases although not in every case.

Experiment if you must, but try to choose a color scheme early on in the semester and stick with it. That way, when you come back to the first cases of the semester, you will not be confused with multiple color schemes. The basic sections of a case for which you should consider giving a different color are:

• Procedural History

• Issue (and questions presented)

• Holding (and conclusions)

• Analysis (rationale)

• Other Considerations (such as dicta)

Not all of these sections demand a separate color. You may find that combining Facts and Procedural History or Issues and Holdings works best. Furthermore, as mentioned above, some sections may not warrant highlighting in every case (e.g., dicta probably do not need to be highlighted unless they are particularly important). If you decide that a single color is all that you need, then stick to one, but if you find yourself highlighting lots of text from many different sections, reconsider the use of at least a few different colors. Highlighters make text stand out, but only when used appropriately. The use of many colors enables you to highlight more text without reducing the highlighter’s effectiveness. Three to four colors provides decent color variation without the cumbersomeness of handling too many markers.

Once you are comfortable with your color scheme, determining exactly what to highlight still may be difficult. Similar to knowing what to annotate, experience will perfect your highlighting skills. Be careful not to highlight everything, thus ruining your highlighters’ effectiveness; at the same time, do not be afraid to make mistakes.

Now that we have covered the basics of reading, annotating, highlighting, and briefing a case, you are ready to start practicing. Keep the tips and techniques mentioned in this chapter in mind when you tackle the four topics in the remainder of this book. If you have difficultly, refer back to this chapter to help guide you as you master the case method of study and the art of using the common law.

There are a number of cases that have had a significant impact on business law. Here are five of the most important ones: 1. Brown v. Board of Education: This landmark 1954 case overturned the “separate but equal” doctrine that had been used to justify racial segregation in public schools. The Court held that segregated schools were inherently unequal and violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. 2. Roe v. Wade: This 1973 case recognized a woman’s right to abortion under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Court held that laws prohibiting abortion violated a woman’s right to privacy and autonomy over her own body. 3. Miranda v. Arizona: This 1966 case established the now-famous Miranda warnings, which must be given to criminal suspects before they can be interrogated by police. The warnings advise suspects of their right to remain silent and to have an attorney present during questioning. 4.. Gideon v Wainwright: In this 1963 case, the Supreme Court ruled that all criminal defendants have a constitutional right to counsel, even if they cannot afford to hire an attorney themselves .The Court held that states must provide indigent defendants with representation at trial .5.. US v Nixon :This 1974 case resulted in President Richard Nixon’s resignation from office . The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Nixon was required to turn over tapes and documents related to the Watergate scandal , despite his claim of executive privilege . The ruling limited the president’s ability to withhold information from Congress andthe judiciary .

There are a number of key cases that have had a significant impact on business law. Here are five of the most important ones: 1. Citizens United v. FEC: This 2010 Supreme Court case overturned a century of precedent and opened the floodgates for corporate money in politics. The ruling has had a major impact on the way businesses operate and influence government policymaking. 2. Brown v. Board of Education: This 1954 landmark case struck down segregation in public schools, paving the way for greater equality in education and in other areas of American life. 3. Roe v. Wade: The 1973 Supreme Court decision legalized abortion nationwide, giving women greater control over their reproductive choices and sparking decades of debate on the issue. 4. Plessy v Ferguson: This 1896 case upheld racial segregation under the “separate but equal” doctrine, which was eventually overturned by Brown v Board of Education (see above).

Actavis, Inc., centers on whether so-called “reverse payment” settlements between brand-name drug companies and their generic rivals violate federal antitrust laws. These types of settlements are common in the pharmaceutical industry, but the FTC argues that they harm consumers by delaying the introduction of cheaper generic drugs into the market. A ruling in favor of the FTC could lead to more aggressive antitrust enforcement against other industries as well. 2. Another U.S. Supreme Court case with potential implications for business is American Trucking Associations v. City of Los Angeles . The case challenges a Los Angeles ordinance that imposes additional fees on trucking companies using certain roads within the city limits. The trucking industry argues that these fees are unconstitutional because they amount to an illegal tax on interstate commerce . If the Supreme Court agrees, it could strike down similar ordinances around the country and make it harder for cities to raise revenue through fees and charges on businesses . 3 . In China , e-commerce giant Alibaba is facing allegations of anticompetitive behavior from regulators . Alibaba is accused of preventing merchants from selling products on competing platforms , as well as giving preferential treatment to its own products and services . This case will be closely watched not only because of Alibaba’s size and importance in the Chinese economy, but also because it could set a precedent for how other internet giants like Facebook and Google are regulated in China . 4 . In Europe , luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton is suing two online retailers over alleged trademark infringement . Louis Vuitton contends that these retailers used its trademarked “toile monogram” print without permission , causing confusion among consumers and damaging its brand reputation . This case highlights some of the challenges luxury brands face in protecting their intellectual property online , where counterfeit goods are rampant . 5 Finally, in Australia , a long-running dispute between Qantas Airways and unions representing its pilots, cabin crew, ground staff, and engineers will come to a head this year . The unions have been engaged in protracted negotiations with Qantas over pay and working conditions , but so far no agreement has been reached .

Business Law Case Study Examples

If you’re studying business law, you know that case studies are an important part of learning about the subject. After all, real-life examples provide a way to see how legal principles can be applied in the workplace. Here are three business law case studies to give you a better understanding of the material. 1. The Case of the Unhappy Employee In this case study, an employee is unhappy with her job and decides to quit. However, she doesn’t just walk out the door – she takes some company property with her. The question is, can the company legally stop her from doing this? 2. The Case of the Poisoned Product A customer buys a product from a store and gets sick after using it. It turns out that the product was tampered with and poisoned. The customer sues the store for damages. Can they win their case? 3. The Case of the Bogus Advertisements A company creates an advertisement that makes false claims about their product. As a result, customers are misled and buy something that isn’t what they thought it was going to be. Is this legal? What can be done about it?

Famous Corporate Law Cases

Some of the most famous corporate law cases in history have revolved around issues of antitrust and monopolies. In the late 19th century, Standard Oil was one of the largest companies in the world, with a monopoly on much of the oil production and refining in the United States. The company was eventually broken up by the U.S. Supreme Court after a long legal battle. Another famous case involving antitrust laws was Microsoft Corp. v. United States, in which the software giant was accused of using its monopoly power to stifle competition. The case ultimately settled without Microsoft being found guilty of any wrongdoing. Other notable corporate law cases have concerned mergers and acquisitions (M&A). In 2001, energy giants Enron and Dynegy nearly merged, but the deal fell apart amid scrutiny from federal regulators. The failed merger would have created one of the largest energy companies in the world, with a market value at that time exceeding $200 billion. More recently, AT&T’s attempted acquisition of T-Mobile was also blocked by regulators on antitrust grounds. These are just a few examples of high-profile M&A deals that have faced regulatory hurdles in recent years.

Business Law Cases With Solutions

In any legal case, there are always two sides to the story. Business law cases are no different. In order to provide a well-rounded account of business law cases, it is important to include solutions from both sides of the argument. When researching business law cases, be sure to read up on the specific details of each case. This will give you a better understanding of the complexities involved and help you form your own opinion on the matter. It is also helpful to look at business law cases from different angles, such as that of the plaintiff and defendant. Once you have a good understanding of the facts surrounding a business law case, it is time to start looking for solutions. To find potential solutions for business law cases, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer or other legal professionals familiar with the topic. They can offer valuable insights and help point you in the right direction. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for business law cases. However, by taking the time to research and understand the various aspects of each case, you can develop creative solutions that meet the unique needs of your company or organization.

Current Business Law Cases

The world of business is always changing, and with that comes a constant stream of new court cases that set precedents for how businesses must operate. This can make it hard to keep up with all the latest developments, but luckily we’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ll be taking a look at some of the most important current business law cases that you need to know about. One case that has been making headlines recently is United States v. Microsoft Corp., in which the U.S. Department of Justice is suing Microsoft for antitrust violations. The DOJ alleges that Microsoft has been using its monopoly power in the PC operating system market to unfairly stifle competition in other markets, such as web browsers and office productivity software. This case could have major implications for how tech giants like Microsoft are allowed to operate in the future, so it’s definitely one to watch closely. Another big case currently working its way through the courts is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which pits a Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding against the state’s civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. The Supreme Court is currently considering whether or not the First Amendment protects the baker’s right to free speech and religious expression, or if Colorado’s anti-discrimination laws should take precedence. This case could have far-reaching consequences for LGBTQ rights and freedom of speech protections in America, so again, it’s one worth paying attention to. These are just two of the many important business law cases making their way through our legal system right now – so make sure you stay up-to-date on all the latest developments!

Supreme Court Cases Involving Business

The U.S. Supreme Court is the highest court in the land and its rulings can have a profound impact on businesses, large and small. Here are five landmark cases involving businesses that were decided by the Supreme Court: 1. Brown v. Board of Education (1954): This case overturned the “separate but equal” doctrine that had been used to justify racial segregation in public schools. The ruling helped pave the way for integration in all aspects of American life, including workplaces. 2. Gideon v. Wainwright (1963): This case established the right of all criminal defendants to have an attorney, even if they cannot afford one. The ruling has had a significant impact on business, as many corporate executives have been charged with white-collar crimes in recent years. 3. Miranda v Arizona (1966): This case held that criminal suspects must be read their Miranda rights before being interrogated by police. The ruling has made it more difficult for law enforcement to obtain confessions from suspects, but it also protects businesses from employees who may be coerced into incriminating themselves during an interrogation. 4. Roe v Wade (1973): This controversial case legalized abortion nationwide and helped establish a woman’s right to control her own body and reproductive choices. While some businesses have used this ruling to restrict women’s access to contraception and abortion services, others have used it to provide these services to employees as part of their health care benefits packages.. . 5) Citizens United v FEC (2010): In this highly divisive case, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations and unions could spend unlimited amounts of money on political campaigns, as long as they did not coordinate with the candidates themselves. . .

Recent Business Law Cases

The past year has seen a number of significant business law cases. Here are some of the most noteworthy: In re Triton Coal Co., the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York held that non-consensual third-party releases in a plan confirmation order are unenforceable against dissenting creditors. This decision will have far-reaching implications for future bankruptcy cases, as it limits the ability of debtors to unilaterally bind all creditors to settlement terms. In State Farm v. United States, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that state attorneys general cannot bring claims on behalf of their citizens under the False Claims Act (FCA). This ruling could make it more difficult for whistleblowers to bring qui tam actions under the FCA, as they will now need to find private attorneys general to pursue their claims. In Salzberg v. Sciabacucchi, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court held that state courts have personal jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants who sell products online into Massachusetts without ever physically entering the state. This case is significant because it expands the reach of state consumer protection laws and makes it easier for plaintiffs to sue out-of-state companies in Massachusetts courts.

Business Law Cases for Students

Most business law cases arise out of disputes between businesses or between businesses and consumers. In order to win a case, students must be able to identify the legal issue at stake and apply the relevant law to the facts of the case. There are many different types of business law cases, but some of the most common include breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, and product liability. Each type of case requires a different legal analysis, but all require a thorough understanding of both the law and the facts of the particular case. To succeed in business law cases, students must be able to think critically and analytically about complex problems. They must also be able to communicate their thoughts clearly and persuasively, both in writing and in court.

Legal System in the World | International Business | From A Business Professor

Business law is constantly evolving to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of business. Here are five major cases that have had a significant impact on business law: 1. Brown v. Board of Education: This landmark case overturned the concept of “separate but equal” in education, holding that segregated schools were inherently unequal. The case had far-reaching implications for other areas of life, including employment and housing. 2. Roe v. Wade: This controversial Supreme Court ruling legalized abortion nationwide. The decision led to a wave of state-level laws regulating abortion, as well as a fierce debate that continues to this day. 3. Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission: This 2010 Supreme Court ruling removed many restrictions on campaign spending by corporations and other organizations. The decision has been highly controversial, with some arguing that it gives too much power to special interests and wealthy donors. 4. Obergefell v. Hodges: In this 2015 case, the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry nationwide. The ruling resulted in a flurry of activity at the state level, with many states changing their laws to conform with the new federal standard. 5 .

Business Law: Case Studies Examples

Case study no. 1 – coca-cola co. v. babyback’s int’l, inc., 806 n.e.2d 37 (ind.ct.app. 2004), description of facts.

The facts relate to a conflict of assertion and denial of the formation of contractual obligations between CCE (Coca-Cola Enterprises) and Babyback’s International Inc. In addition, whether the enforcement of a memo between the parties was a valid and enforceable document, despite the fact that it was preliminary in nature and did not incriminate CCE in the terms and conditions mentioned in it. Babyback Int. Inc. had entered into agreement with Hondo Incorp. , Bottling and handling agents, which gave rights to Babyback to have their products displayed alongside Coca-Cola in Indanapolis. Encouraged by the responses it generated, it was decided to cover other regions of Atlanta under CCE jurisdiction, although no written agreement was signed.

After round of talks between CCE and Babyback, during November 97, Babyback sent a fax message to CCE enlisting general terms and conditions governing a co-marketing strategy in Atlanta and other country.

It was held by Babyback that CCE had breached the agreement when it did not honour the terms and conditions contained in fax message sent for release of up-front charges and denied having ever had a valid contractual relationship with Babyback. The fact remained whether Babyback would be able to enforce the agreement based on oral discussions, of no mutually contracted significance. CCE had stressed all along that they need to be granted a partial summary judgment since, under the Statute of Frauds, the contract needs to be performed within a year and written contracts need to be signed by parties. CCE argues that the faxed memo following the November 1997 meeting is insufficient to satisfy the statute because it fails to contain the essential terms of a contract, and further, because it shows that no consensual agreement had been reached between the parties

After invaliditing the CCE motion for partial summary judgment, the Trial Court held this appeal made after mutual discussion identified three major areas for appellate review

  • Whether this memo would constitute valid evidence under the Statute of Frauds.
  • Implication of the Past performance doctrine.
  • The availability of the doctrine of promissory estoppels.

It is seen that CCE has not be able to enforce the partial summary judgment in order to avoid the Statute of Frauds. The conditions specified in the Statute of Fraud, inter alia include, “the promise, contract, or agreement on which the action is based,” or “a memorandum or note describing the promise, contract, or agreement,” must be “in writing and signed by the party against whom the action is brought or by the party’s authorized agent.” Ind. Code § 32-21-1-1(b). (In the Indiana Supreme Court: Statute of frauds writing).

Moreover, it i s seen that the faxed memo is not an ultimate contractual document, but only a preliminary instrument for negotiations. Since the matters are still under discussion stages, the matter is still wide open and anything could transpire. Therefore, it would be premature for CCE to make estimated guesses upon the ultimate outcome of the appellate hearings and its outcomes.

Yocca v.Pittsburg Steelage Sports Inc. 806 A.2d 936 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 2002)

The facts relate to the purchase of stadium builder licenses from Pittsburgh Steelers, the purpose of the SBL being to finance the construction of a bigger football stadium. As per the terms of the SBL Brochure, during November 1998, the applicants signed the application and sent the requisite deposit money for reserving seats for the football matches to be played in the stadium. In the applications, the applicants had to indicate their choice of section of the stadium in which they wanted their seats to be located. However, in the Brochures, the seat and blocks were not clearly demarcated. However the appellees gave their preferences and also their first , second and third preferences. They had indicated their seats to be located in the 20-yard line.

However, they received allotment letter and SBL Agreement letter in August 1999, showing their allotted seats different from what was promised to them through the Brochure.

The issue that arouse were that the allotted seats were not in conformity with the seats shown in the SBL Brochures and were between the 18 Yard line instead of 20 yards line. Moreover, it was also felt that they were awarded Grade II seats when they had paid for Grade I seats. (Houghton Miffin: Online Study Center. Incensed, the appellates filed a suit in the trial court.

The trial Court dismissed the appelates contention stating that the SBL agreement assumed supreme importance, was an integrated document, and superceded all other previous documents. The SBL Brochure was just an invitation for the public to make offers and did not constitute a valid commitment or promise. Their contention that Unfair Trade Practices & Consumer Protection Law ( UTPCL) was violated did not hold good since the Court felt that SBL were neither goods nor services. (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District : Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.

The appellees were not also given the benefit of declaratory relief since it was felt that this contract cannot be nullified since the SBL Agreement has been accepted and authenticated by the appellants.

The appelles next went to the Common wealth Courts, who, while validating the trial court’s dismissal of Appellees’ fraud and negligent misrepresentation claims and injunctive relief

Claim, “reversed “the trial court’s dismissal of Appellees’ claims for breach of contract. (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District : Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.

However, Justice Cohn took a different stance and enforced the concept of parol evidence in the form of the SBL Agreement superceded all other documents and evidences. Again, the matter of declaratory relief stating that the terms of the SBL Brochure must be merged into the SBL agreement is not tenable in law.since the SBL Agreement is complete in itself and the Courts felt that further explanations were not needed.

Accordingly, we reverse the Commonwealth Court’s order reversing the trial court’s order dismissing Appellees’ claims for breach of contract, violation of the UTPCPL, and Held, the Commonwealth Court’s directives hereby reverse the reversing trial court’s verdict rejecting the Appellees claims for breach of contract etc, (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District: Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.

It is felt that justice has not been fully carried out in this case. This is because the appelles had place their trust and confidence on the SBL brochure, and had booked their seats meticulously and without the chances of errors. However, it is seen that the Sports Corp. had not lived up to its promises as evidenced in the SBL Brochure. It also needs to be said that the contractual agreement between the Appellees and the Company began upon sending of the completed Application forms along with the stipulated payments, well within stipulated date. It would have been in the fitness of things if the aggrieved appellees are duly compensated for the losses suffered by them in terms of lowered seating positions which was not in consonance with the diagrams shown in the initial Brochures and which later on turned to be of Class II instead of Class II, thereby incurring losses.
