LGST 201 7980 – Legal Writing
When you synthesize, you explain the law and the reasoning of the courts when they resolve a specific issue. It explains the law and how the courts reach their holdings. The synthesis explains the standards, factors, criteria, and approaches that the courts use to solve the legal dispute. When you read a statute and a set of opinions all focused on the same issue, you will notice that the approach to resolving the issue may be the same.
For this exercise, use the applicable cases listed below to explain and synthesize the law that applies in slip and fall cases including how to establish such a case as well as the defenses available.
