Week 4: Discussion 2 – Defendant’s case

No unread replies. No replies.

Once again, a good lawyer or advocate always recognizes the other side’s perspective, even if they do not agree with it. In this week’s discussions, you will practice that critical thinking skill.

Pick a Discussion 1 post of a fellow student. (Tell us which one you picked.) Using IRAC and the elements of Negligence or Wrongful Death, outline the Medical Defendant’s case. Use the elements as defined in this week’s lecture.

Note that each element of the case must have a fact proving (or in this case disproving) it. However, defeating one element is often enough to rebut a Plaintiff’s case. You may refer back to the hand-washing example in the lectures.

Initial posts should be three to four full, substantive paragraphs in length.

Please submit your initial post by Thursday at 11:59 pm and all follow-up posts by Sunday at 11:59 pm. The discussions grading rubric is used for this assignment.
