This paper introduces a simplified method, called the Legal Analysis Template, for introducing the skill of legal analysis to both the undergraduate business law student and first-year law students. The Legal Analysis Template is related to what is called “legal frame working” in law school and is needed by law students and lawyers, to analyze legal issues and requires the user of the legal framework to have a detailed understanding of the law. This same level of skill is not taught at the undergraduate level but a basic understanding helps business students understand how the law is used and also increases critical thinking skills by requiring them to evaluate and chose which law to use and whether or not the facts support the application of that law.
