Orientation Assignment

A case brief is a written summary of a case. Briefing cases requires you to read a case carefully and then summarize its important parts in your own words. As you prepare for class each day, you should brief the cases assigned for that particular class. Additionally, case briefs are useful for reviewing course materials and for preparing an outline of the course.

The Orientation program includes a lecture on briefing cases. The Orientation Assignment packet will contain information on how to brief a case, a case to be discussed during the lecture, and an assignment sheet. Be prepared with the assignment when you attend orientation.

The 2024 Orientation Assignment packet will be posted in summer 2024.
