Respected members,

I am a student and I want to learn how to do a proper judgment analysis and what things to be kept in mind while analyzing?



In order to establish a good judgment analysis it is suggested to make a logical outline of the judgment in the beginning itself. Focus on the factual issues and then conduct the analysis of evidence which are applicable to law. Articulate the reasoning behind the judgment and keep the rule of fairness and equity in mind.

Use simple and plain English and avoid repetitions and long sentences. Include footnotes wherever needed and follow a single writing style throughout the whole judgment. Be thorough with the facts of the case and begin with the name of the court and then the name of the presiding officer followed by the cause title of the case. Civil and criminal judgments have different structure and format so keep that in mind.

The most important part of a judgement analysis is the Ratio Decidendi where you have to make and give reason for making a decision about the entire case, use a good articulation approach and reach to a logical conclusion.
