Find four cases from your state that discuss the formation of the attorney-client relationship. For each case, prepare a one-page legal brief as you learned to do in Legal Research and Writing I. In case you need a quick reminder, a legal brief identifies and discusses: Issue, Rule, Holding/Decision and Analysis/Reasoning of the case. Each case must consider a different issue stemming from the attorney-client relationship. Remember to use Bluebook format and citations.
