• Use 12-point, Times New Roman font, single-spaced.
• Include a heading at the top of your paper. In your heading, remember to indicate: your name / the class, the course CRN #, and the instructor / the assignment # / and the date. For example, a proper heading would look like this:
Criminal Law CRN# 20067, Prof. Carvill
• Failure to include a proper heading will result in a 10% grade reduction (-10 points).
• You must follow the case brief format. Minimally, your case brief should include the following sections and they should be clearly labeled:
Case Name & Citation:
• Single-spaced, your brief should be no more than one full page in length. It should not be less than half a page in length.
• Write in complete sentences and use proper grammar. Widespread grammatical errors will hinder your clarity and your grade.
