Jack is a shoe maker with a shop adjacent to a very busy federal highway. He markets his products to interstate travellers. He employs three people: John, Jim and Jane, none of whom has a shoe making lisense.

What issues are raised under the US constitution and how will they be resolved by the district court?
Assume that the above is a student's summary of performance test facts.
Answer the following:
i) What was the source of the facts summarized by the student?
2) If the performance test requires that the shop closure and fine be challenged, where will the student find authorities and rule definitions needed to argue against the fine and closure?
1. Think IRAC as you read the question
2. Read the interogatory first
3. Decide what the issue (i.e. the legal controversy) is
4. Recall the rule governing that controversy (i.e. the issue)
5. Apply that rule to each answer choice
6. The answer choice that best marries your facts to your rule is the best choice.
PORTABLE IRAC BASICS
What is an "issue"?
All possible law suits with related damages and defenses raised by the facts.
What is a rule?
Clear legal definitions of your selected issues.
What does "APPLICATION" or argument mean?
The line-by-line item-by-item explanation of how your rules are either fulfilled by the facts or fall short.
What is the "conclusion" to an essay?
It is the 1-minute sound bite that finishes your arguments by taking a partisan position regarding liability or guilt.
Performance Test Tips
On your performance test your normal IRAC skills must be used to write your required task.
The issues come from the task(s) to be performed.
The examiner requires you to challenge a contractor's suspension from bidding on a job for lack of a license.
The issue is: Can Our Client Be Properly Suspended From Bidding?
Your rule(s) will come from the library. They will come from case law and statutes in your library.
Your application section will compare your facts (found in the case file) with the rules you discerned from the case law and statutes.
Your conclusion will tell the examiner a nut shell of what you believe the client's position is under the law.
For the performance test you MUST outline your Issues, Rules, Arguments and Conclusions during your 90-minute reading time before you start writing.
If you do not outline your performance test before you start writing you will almost certainly do poorly.
It is much more difficult to pass the bar exam without passing both performance tests.
