If youhave already been assigned a group and a case (in anticipation of the group presentation)then please continue to focus on the case you were given. If, for whatever reason, you werenot assigned a group and/or have not been given a particular case, please select any one ofthe cases below (do not write a presentation on more than one of these cases).Note that this is a legal presentation. As such you should focus on relevant legal sources,and in particular on the case report itself. You should briefly justify your use of secondarysources (case notes, journal articles, textbook chapters etc) referred to. These can beextremely helpful. But take care to consider their reliability and appropriateness.Your written presentation should include the following:1. Describe how you found this case, and how you found any supporting materials.2. What is the case about? (what is the story?)3. What is the decision/judgment/conclusion of the case?4. Why is this case significant? (How might it be applied?)You may use the space you have within page limit in whatever you think best. For instancethere is no expectation that equal space will be given to each of the above four elements. Butdo make sure that you have included each of them.It will help to make your presentation clear if you use the numbering provided above. Forinstance when you are describing how you found your case, number your answer to this as1).In the instruction box above you will see that references and a bibliography are required.
