Due 11:59 pm ET, Tuesday Submit to Assignment Folder
The purpose of this project is to develop skills analyzing a legal issue and explaining that analysis in a legal memorandum.
Course Outcome Met by Project 1:
Draft objective, well-organized memoranda that analyze legal issues based on statutory law and case law
Background: You and Attorney Chong are continuing to work on client Mary Hastings case. The next step is for you to draft a case law analysis memo for Mary Hastings’ case to submit to Attorney Chong.
The Project 2 Case Law Analysis Memo should analyze and explain the issues and law in cases relevant to Mary Hastings’ case. Also, the memo should apply that law to the facts, and set out reasoned conclusions. Facts: Please refer to HASTINGS CASE FACTS: Projects 1,2,3,4 in Content to review the facts and court opinions relevant to Mary Hastings’ case.
Review the Project 2 rubric.
Review the court opinions relevant to the Hastings case:
Deering Woods Condominium Association, 377 Md. 250
Joseph, 173 Md. App. 305
Maans, 161 Md. App. 620
Using the three court opinions above, draft a case law analysis memo evaluating the stated issue in the Mary Hastings case (see below).
The memo must follow the IRAC format and include four sections: Issue, Rule, Analysis and Conclusion. Review sample IRAC memos in Week 4 Instructor Notes and Week 5 content. NOTE ABOUT THE WEEK 5 SAMPLE: Do NOT follow the sample in Writing an Application of the Law in Week 5 content. INSTEAD, follow the UPDATED SAMPLE in the content for this week. Note that the sample in the Week 4 Instructor Notes is a good sample for the format. However, the UPDATED SAMPLE is better to follow to see how to flesh out the Rule and Analysis sections.
The memo analysis focuses on:
Whether Gilford Pines Condominium Association could be held liable for Mary Hastings’ slip and fall injuries if it had actual and/or constructive notice of a dangerous and/or defective condition and failed to take reasonable care to fix the condition? Comprehensively, from all parties’ perspectives, apply the law to the Hastings case and fully support and explain your conclusions. __________
