Assume you are working as a paralegal in a law office. Your attorney asks you to draft a memorandum of law.
Draft a memorandum based on one of the hypotheticals from the Performing Legal Research assignments. You cannot use the same hypothetical as you used for the Legal Correspondence assignment. The memorandum can be on behalf of any client involved in the matter.
The memorandum should include at least four authorities.
The memorandum will be graded on content, grammar, and format.
This was the scenario I used for this assignment:
The client has been married for ten years. The client did not believe there were any problems in the marriage. However, last week, the client’s spouse informed the client that the spouse was leaving the client and marrying a close friend of the client. Apparently the client’s spouse and the friend have been involved for more than one year. The client was informed of a cause of action for “alienation of affection” or an action pursuant to the “heart balm” statute.
