Write a 2 to 3 page research memorandum based on the court case as assigned by your instructor.:
A-M: Chapter 7 (Case provided in Problem 13)
N-Z: Chapter 7 (Case provided in Problem 14)
2. Structure your memo as follows:
Facts: Succinctly state the facts relevant to the resolution of the case you are analyzing. Doing so involves reviewing the facts to include only those relevant to answering the question(s) at issue in your memorandum.
Question Presented: State the question or questions your memorandum seeks to answer. If possible, present it in a single sentence or two (e.g., Will Mr. Smith have to include the value of the property in his income?). Most (if not all) of the memoranda you will be assigned will present a single, overarching question. Granted, there may be multiple issues that you have to analyze to answer this question, but all of them go toward answering the larger question–such as whether the taxpayer has to include the value of some property in his or her income.
Short Answer: State the answer to the Question(s) Presented as clearly and succinctly as possible–again, preferably in a single sentence or a few sentences. (For example, your Short Answer to the Question Presented above might be, Mr. Smith will have to include the value of the property in his income.)
Analysis: This is the substantive portion of your memorandum and is worth the majority of the points on the assignment. It is where you present all of the analysis that is required to support your Short Answer. In performing your analysis, you should use the general IRAC approach you have learned and utilized to date, although you will not have specific sections within the Analysis listed as Issue, Rule, Analysis, and Conclusion. Once you have identified the issue or issues that you have to resolve to answer the Short Answer, you should address the authority for your position. Your analysis for each of these issues should review these authorities and then apply them to the facts of the case to draw conclusions.
Recommendations: Finally, it is very important that you analyze the case from a business perspective and provide recommendations on how a business could have avoided or mitigated the legal issue involved in the case. What recommendations will you make to management to prevent this issue from occurring in the future?
