Sports and Drug Testing in College
The case that you pick must be about sports and drug testing in college. Also the case has to be closed and decided. These are the things that’s need for me to get in A (1) sport or leisure-related, (2) decided (i.e., not settled out of court, ruled as summary judgement, dismissed), and (3) post-1980.
CASE ANALYSES ASSIGNMENTS
In most law schools in the United States, the curriculum is based on the “case study method.” This means that students read previous cases in order to learn how courts make legal decisions by applying relevant law to the facts of the case. In this manner, law students learn not only the law, but also gain an understanding of the reasoning courts use in deciding disputes. While not law students, this is still the best method to learn the law.When students first begin reading and analyzing cases, the best approach is to read a case at least twice. First, read the entire case without taking notes to become familiar with the basic subject matter and major issues. On the second reading, take notes,organizing them in a brief format.Throughout the duration of this semester, students will complete two case analyses.
