The case analysis should consist of the following three headings:
2. Opinion/Legal Analysis
3. Relevance to Business Environment
Find a recent lawsuit, legal news story, or article using an Internet or DUO library search
centering on formation of a sales contract (i.e., offer/acceptance). News-feed websites such as MSN or CNN, or search engines such as Yahoo or Google may be useful. Major publications such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, etc are available through the Davenport library. You may also use your hometown newspaper websites as a resource. To complete the case analysis, you should research the assigned topic to provide a measure of information about the topic’s significance to the current business environment.
The Overview/Summary section should thoroughly address the facts and background
of your chosen case or legal dispute and the legal issue (or law) in question.
The Opinion/Legal Analysis section should demonstrate your critical thinking and
analysis of the subject matter as it relates to the legal principles and concepts covered
in the textbook. You should provide a thorough explanation and discussion of the legal principles as they apply to the issue in question.
The Relevance to Business Environment section should discuss the topic’s
application to the current business climate and offer an insight-building summary,
recommendations, findings and conclusions. Feel free to draw on your own professional
experience as well.

pages or more), pages to be double-spaced, typed in 12-point font. The point allocation
