Part 2: Write a legal memo to your client, Jerry Maguire
For the second part of the assignment, you will be drafting a legal memo to your client, Jerry
Maguire, to provide him with legal advice. You should address the memo to Jerry and use the
format of the sample memo.
1. Using the IRAC method (issue, rule, analysis, conclusion), analyze one legal claim that you
have identified while watching the film:
– Law Firm A – analyze a claim that Jerry can bring against another party.
– Law Firm B – analyze a claim that could be asserted against Jerry.
2. Identify at two additional legal claims that Jerry could assert (extra credit for more than
two).
3. Identify at two legal claims that could be asserted against Jerry (extra credit for more than
two).

Question 1: IRAC Analysis (analyze the claim that you are assigned to above)
For the first question, you should use the IRAC method to analyze your legal claim. Keep in mind
that your client is Jerry, irrespective of the claim that you are analysing, so the memo should be
addressed to him.

Issue. Identify the claim that you are analyzing and include a very brief summary of the facts
giving rise to the claim.

Rule. Part 1 of the assignment, where you defined a variety of claims, was preparation for
this section of the IRAC analysis. For the rule section, you should include two things: 1) all of
the elements of the legal claim (numbered); and 2) a citation to a case that sets forth all of
the elements of the legal claim.

Analysis. In this section, you should use the numbered elements that you identified in the
rule section to provide the framework for your analysis.
1. Use facts/information from the film to explain why Jerry/the other party will be able to
prove each of the elements of the claim to the court. You should identify and discuss all
of the facts that are relevant (both ones that would help the plaintiff prove the claim, as
well as facts that would present a challenge for the plaintiff).
2. If there are any defenses that could be raised, you should discuss them in this section of
your memo.
3. You must cite to a case that analyzes the type of claim that you are analyzing. You must
use a different case than the one you identified in the Part 1 of the assignment.

Conclusion. For the conclusion, you should provide Jerry with a brief summary of: 1) for Law
Firm A – how likely you think he to prevail on the legal claim that you have analyzed; or 2)
Law Firm B – how likely you think the other party is to prevail on their claim against Jerry.
Question 2: Additional claims that Jerry can assert

Jerry has asked you to identify at least two additional legal claims that he can assert against
other parties. For each claim that you identify (use bullet point format), include the
following: the legal claim (i.e., right of publicity), the party against whom Jerry could assert
the claim (i.e., NYU), and a brief summary of the facts giving rise to the claim.

For example: Based on the Tisch Institute’s use of Jerry’s name, image and likeness on tshirts that are being sold at 7 E. 12th Street and on the NYU website, Jerry could assert a
claim against the Tisch Institute and NYU for violating his right of publicity under New York
State Civil Rights Law Sections 50 and 51.
Question 3: Additional claims that can be asserted against Jerry

Jerry has asked you to identify at least two legal claims that could be asserted against him.
For each claim that you identify (use bullet point format), include the following: the legal
claim (i.e., battery), the party who could bring the claim against Jerry (i.e., NYU), and a brief
summary of the facts giving rise to the claim.

For example: New York University could assert a claim for battery against Jerry based on his
conduct at a recent event hosted by SPS at which Jerry punched a security guard in the face
after being asked to leave the building at 7 E. 12th Street.

Additional Notes/Directions:

This is an individual assignment, which means that you may NOT consult with any other
persons, whether verbally or in writing, regarding the assignment. You can watch the film
with someone, but the analysis needs to be your own. This includes ChatGPT (or any other AI
program/app), your classmates, students who have previously taken the class, your lawyer
friends and anyone else. If you have questions about the assignment, please ask me.

Case citations. Two case cites are required in your memo:
1. You are required to include a case citation in the rule section (you have already done
this in Part 1 of the assignment)
2. You are also required to include a different case citation in the analysis section and
explain how the case supports your argument. See the sample memo for an example.
You may use any cases that have been assigned for class, ones mentioned in the class
slides, references to cases in your textbook (but make sure you cite to the case, not
the text book), and/or any cases that you find on Google or otherwise. The Lexis
database on the NYU Library website is a good resource. DO NOT cite to any
websites, articles, your textbook, or other non-legal sources.

Please make sure that you analyze only civil claims, as individuals are not able to assert any
criminal claims (only the federal (US Attorneys) and state (District Attorneys) can prosecute
criminal charges. This means that you should not be citing to any cases or statutes that deal
with criminal law (the “Penal Code” = criminal law statutes, so do not cite to any of these).
Cases with “United States” or “People” as the first party in the caption are also criminal
cases and should not be used.
