7) How important is it to Sherardize the case in a memorandum of law or brief? When should this be done? Why? 8) How are the memorandum of law and the court brief similar, and different? Explain fully They are similar in that they both analyze the law on a particular subject or situation. They differ in that the memorandum is supposed to be an objective evaluation of the law to inform someone on the current state of the law on the subject. It is supposed to be unbiased and neutral. A brief, on the other hand, is a persuasive document that uses case law to bolster its position. A brief is filed with a court by a party to convince the court to rule in favor of the drafter of the brief.
