FACTS- (This should be real easy- they come right from the book)
ISSUE(s)- (Must be a question- What is the dispute between the parties? What is the question to be discussed?)
LAW- (What is the applicable law?) Research the law in the chapter, cite and define/explain which laws are applicable.
DISCUSSION- (This is your analysis-include major and minor points and opposing points of view or counterpoints to add depth to your analysis. Remember, use proper paragraphs.)
CONCLUSION -(Sometimes referred to as the Resolution-I should be able to know your conclusion by the way your framed your issue and by your Discussion-go back to your Issue- see if you answered the question(s) posed in a sentence or two at best.)
