What is the First Amendment?
You can locate the case in Westlaw; you can also find a lot of information about the case on pages 18-23, with a case analysis, including a sample brief, provided by the author on pages 24-28.
Based on the questions and your readings, think about how you would summarize (brief) this case.
TIP! Read Twice. On the SECOND reading, highlight or take notes.
Pre-read a case without highlighting anything!
"This can be tough because as you pre-read you get a sense of what is important and naturally want to note it. However, you can never really know what is important until you read an entire case.
By not highlighting anything on your first pass, you also save time in the long run when you outline. When you outline, you return to a case a few weeks after you first read it. With unnecessary highlighting, you end up spending a lot of time re-reading to find out what is relevant in a given case.
On your second pass through the case, identify the relevant sections and highlight the issue(s), rule(s), facts, analysis, policy, procedural history and other elements. Identify the elements with a notation in the margin. Some students use different colored highlighters to identify different elements. One color is used for the rule, another for the issue, and so on. This usually works well only for highly visual people. For myself, I find that different colors slow you down and only add to the confusion of too much highlighting.
As in all things, if it works for you and adds to your productivity and efficiency, then do it. Otherwise, eliminating the clutter will speed you along your way" -Law Nerds, 2012
