Law: Case note

A case note presents an overview and analysis of a legal case. It is usually divided into two parts: a case summary and a case analysis/research assignment. The case summary (sometimes called the ‘case note’) provides a description of the facts, procedural history and legal reasoning of a case. The case analysis involves a discussion of the judgment’s impact and the legal implications of the case. In this resource you will learn about researching and writing a case note assignment.
