Any law student will tell you that analysing case law and applying it to your arguments effectively can be a fine art.
When I was a student at UCL I initially struggled with effectively organising my approach and knowing where to start. This printable distils the structured approach that I developed over time. It helped me to ensure I had understood the key concepts, could apply them effectively in assessments and get those higher marks.
Get a head start and simplify your approach with the London Law Student Case Analysis printable.
- Space to record: Date, Module and Topic
- Trackers: Study tracker to encourage repeated reviews of the information and a topic confidence gauge.
- Full Case Name: usually the name of the parties involved, the court in which the case was heard and year e.g. Donoghue v Stevenson  UKHL 100
- Shorthand Name: useful and easy to remember version of the full case name to use during exams and essays after first citation e.g. Donoghue v Stevenson 
- Facts: this space is smaller for a reason! Include a succinct summary of the case’s key facts and legal points raised. Top tip: this is usually summarised at the beginning of the judgement.
- Issue: focus on teasing out the nature of the case e.g. what it held/raised as an issue. State the law as it was at the time and reflect on the key issues/questions of law it concerns and raises.
- Held: summarise the complaints and issues, and then what the judge held and the reasons they gave.
- Analyse: for those top marks, you need to analyse the significance of the case e.g. its relationship to other cases or historic importance, impact etc. Next – consider how it applies to the situation or argument you are making.
